Sometimes there is a situation when you need to resume the OS, that is, to return the system to a state where certain actions have not yet been performed. At the same time all system files will be fully restored. This procedure is necessary when you need to remove all installed programs or applications and at the same time leave the PC in a fully operational state. It is important to remember that all settings will return to the same state that was set at the restore point.
When can I log in?
Sometimes after a new application has been installed, a specific program stops working or a driver crashes. Then you can restore work to the last point. In order to return the state of the computer before the moment it crashed and do not lose your files, you should perform the following actions:
- Open "Control Panel" in service applications.
- In the pop-up window, find the item "Recovery" .
- After the appearance of the new window, check "Start System Restore" .
- Next, select one of the proposed rollback points. In Windows 8, the system is saved automatically before each software installation. But you can always do it yourself.
- Now click on the “Finish” button and wait for the restoration to complete.
Please note that after starting the renewal, the process will not be postponed. Cancel actions will be possible only at the end of the download. After the system is restored, a reboot will occur and the PC will return to its previous operation.
If you can not start the damaged system
Unfortunately, it is not always possible to start a damaged system, but you should not forget that the creators of Windows thought this out beforehand.

- Now you need to click on the "Done" button. Pay attention to which disk will be rolled back.
The recovery process is started and after it is finished you can continue to use the computer.
Method 2: Rollback from a bootable flash drive
Some operating systems allow you to make a bootable recovery disk using a standard USB flash drive. This allows you to fix autoload, file system or edit any other problems that caused the OS to crash.
To do this, you must perform the following actions:
- In the USB connector, insert your USB flash drive.
- When turning on your computer, press F8 or Shift + F8 . While selecting an action, click the “Diagnostics” item.
- Next, select the line "Advanced Options" .
