    How do I create a Restore Point?before Installing New Software?

    I have been using Windows XP Professional and I want to create a
    restore point before installing new software as a safeguard?

    Most modern applications will create a restore point automatically as
    part of the install process.

    To create a manual restore point use Accessories - System Tools -
    System Restore.

    For more information about System Restore see MVP Bert Kinney's System
