How To Check If System Restore Is On Or Off

How to check if system restore is turned on

1st thing to check is that the system restore function is turned on as this can recover your system from any windows related errors or system changes.

Steps to achieve this

To do this click on the start button and in the search box type “advanced system settings”. At the top of the window click on the “view advanced system settings”.  It should come up under the control panel as seen below.
