Recover Windows 7 from any type of serious errors using the repair disc

In an earlier post, I described how can you create a system repair disc for the situations where Windows 7 cannot start successfully. Well, it’s time to find out how can you use the system repair disc you’ve created.

Here is what you must do:

– First of all, insert the system repair disc into your CD or DVD drive.
– Restart your computer using the computer’s power button.
– If prompted, press any key to start the computer from the system repair disc. If your computer isn’t configured to start from a CD or DVD, you’ll have to check the information that came with your computer. You might need to change your computer’s BIOS settings in order to boot from the repair disc.
– If you could start the computer using the repair disc,  choose your language settings, and then click Next.
– Select a recovery option, and then click Next.

Create a system repair disc for the situations where Windows 7 cannot start successfully

As suggested in an earlier post, when the installation of a program (driver,etc) causes Windows to behave unpredictably (errors, system freeze, etc), one of the best thing you could do is to use Windows System Restore to undo all the changes made to your system and causes troubles. Most of the time, System Restore solves the problem but what if Windows no longer boot properly in order to use System Restore? This is the case when you’ll need a Windows installation disc or access to the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer. If you don’t have either of those choices, you can create a system repair disc to access system recovery options but of course, you do this when your system is still working properly (or from another working computer) so wait no longer, create a system repair disc. How? It’s simple, really.

Start by typing ‘system repair disc’ into the search box in the Start menu and press Enter.

Soon after that, a dialog box opens where you select the right drive and click Create disc.

A CD will be fine as it only takes up around 150MB of space.

Ever wish you could turn back the clock after a bad crash? Use Windows System Restore

Sometimes, the installation of a program (or a driver) can cause an unexpected change to your computer or cause Windows to behave unpredictably (errors, system freeze, etc). Usually, uninstalling the program or driver corrects the problem. If this doesn’t help, you can try restoring your computer’s system to an earlier date when everything worked correctly. How can you do that? Using Windows System Restore.

To access Windows System Restore, start by clicking Windows Start button > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools, and then clicking System Restore.‌

Note: System Restore can undo system changes to your computer without affecting your personal files, such as e‑mail, documents, or photos. However, is not intended for backing up personal files, so it cannot help you recover a personal file that has been deleted or damaged.

SmartClose – a program that can create a system snapshot of your running programs and than restart/restore them later

As you might know, when it comes to install a new program to your computer, it is highly recommended to close all running programs. One of the reasons for this is because during the installation, the program(s) that you want to install might need to update some system files (e.g. system DLLs) that are currently used by the the running programs. In such case, the installation process might not complete successfully. The same recommendation applies when you want to defragment your hard-drive – to close all applications and other constantly running programs (e.g. anti-virus utilities). A program that you’ll find very handy in such case is SmartClose.
