Windows 7 System Restore

Is there any way for me to get to "System Restore" through "Run" or "My Computer"?

Hello Johzen, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you wanted to create a shortcut to use for System Restore that you could pin or move anywhere, then these could help with that.

System Restore Point Shortcut

or

System Protection Properties Shortcut - Create

Hope this helps,
Shawn

No, I accidentally prevented "Users" to access the "Users" folder :))
So the only way I can log in is to Go Safe Mode CMD
While logging in go to Task Manager and "New Task"

Is it possible for me to Restore, even though I didn't set any restore points?

& Thanks for the Welcome

If you had system restore turned on, then it's possible that Windows 7 may have already created some restore points for you automatically. You could do a system restore at boot instead to see if you may have any restore points available that are dated before you denied access to the the "Users" folder to hopefully undo and fix it.

Nar, I don't have to play video games very often at all.

Were you able to do the system restore and sort your issue?
