My suggestion, although not asked, is to also make a system image. Make your System Restore pursuant to the tutorial. In addition, make a system image (image of your entire OS), store it in a safe place. If you ever have a problem, you always have your back up, to that you can return to that point in time. Don't wait, so many times I have advised others to go back to a point using System Image and the answer was that they did not make one. Once you have a good system image, you will never have to reinstall with the DVD, activate again etc.
