  1. Got a couple of questions

    1) How to set a system restore point

    2)How to initiate a system restore from a point you have requested

    1) Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore and then CREATE RESTORE POINT

    2) Once you've found your way to the applet, I'm sure the rest will be obvious.

    Select the Properties for the drive that is using System Restore, and use Disk Cleanup to get rid of system restore points. The only drawback to this method is that all restore points but the most recent are deleted. I don't know of any way to delete points one-by-one, and I have wanted to do that myself. Another option is to change the amount of disk space that you will allow the restore points to take up. You can do this under System Properties-->System Restore. All this does is reduce the number of points that can exist at once.
