Windows 7: How to restore computer to 48 hours ago?

How to restore computer to 48 hours ago?

As the thread title probably indicates I'm a complete newbie at windows 7 restore. Previous Windows OS's let me quickly and easily restore to a time that I wanted, however what I'm getting with 7 is "no restore points have been created". Hmmm. I've searched this forum for an explanation that makes sense to me to no avail; not yet ready to admit to stupidity but will acknowledge that I'm past middle age and well into frustration.

I'm in safe mode now; in regular mode my laptop has slowed to the point of only allowing my desktop to appear & I can't get anything else to work. Every time I click on something that infernal little blue donut just keeps running and running.

64 bit Sony. Is it possible to restore to a config that was working 2 days ago?

Thank you in advance my brothers and sisters who are waaaay more knowledgeable than I.

Well, step 3...

Click on the System Protection link. (See screenshot below step 4)

does not appear in safe mode (the system protection button). Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,

Without the restore points, it would be difficult to return to an earlier time. Lets try to diagnose with a clean boot
