Windows 7: System Restore - Is there a better one than 7's?

System Restore - Is there a better one than 7's?

Hi all

My system restore has always been clunky, even though the PC is quite new.

Are there any trustworthy alternatives that can be downloaded or purchased (if they are better)?

Really, I'm looking for your recommendations.

System Restore is a method of returning the registry, system files, and installed programs to an earlier state.

Is that all you want to do?? Or are you looking for a way to restore an entire partition?

There are registry backup programs such as ERUNT, but I'm not sure how well they work on Windows 7.

I'm not sure if there are any third party programs that do EXACTLY what System Restore does and no more.

On the other hand, there are several programs that can restore an entire partition.

Thank you, Hanna. I'm going to try the portable version. I'll let you know how it goes.

*** Well, I downloaded and used the portable version, but I didn't realize that I still needed the MS System Restore to be running. It didn't solve my problem with SR. I'll keep searching for the answer(s).***
