System Restore in Windows XP is an extremely useful tool. Sometimes you may need to run it when your computer won't boot to Windows normally or in Safe Mode. You can still run System Restore in this case by doing the following:

1) Start your computer to Safe Mode with Command Prompt logging on as an account with administrator rights.

2) Type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and Enter at the command prompt to start the System Restore feature.
