Default what u need to do once you get your pc running

Once everything has been succesfully installed and everything is working fine and beautifully...you should create a restore point so if u f**k up your computer you can always restore your old settings...here is how you do it:

1. Close all your programs and click ''start'', then click ''help and support center''

2. Where it says pick a task click ''undo changes to your computer with system restore''

3. Either restore your computer with the ''restore to an earlier point''option or create a restore point with ''create a restore point''

I hate system restore. Good for some. Not me, it just annoys me. You have fun with it though.
