System Restore is a Windows feature that allows you to revert your Windows system to a previous state. It creates a restore point during events such as Windows updates, and you can also manually create a restore point. The restore points contain a backup of critical system files, registry settings, and installed programs.

You can revert your Windows system to any of your System Restore's backups or restore points. It's generally to a time before you made changes that caused stability issues or to recover from malware infections.

The process might take a while and must be uninterrupted. It'll also require a system restart.
