    Never use system restore

    Here are some reasons why
    • For me, it took 3 days to complete, reinstalling Windows would only probably take an hour
    • It does not restore everything
    • It can do catastrophic damage if there's a power outage during system restore (Very unlikely)
    How to avoid it
    • NEVER use UXtheme patcher unless you know the risks involved
    • Be careful of malware online and DO NOT install it
    • DO NOT EVER use it to uninstall software, there's a much quicker way to do that
    • Do not use it as an anti-virus because you already have one

    I remember when I installed malware for fun on my old Vista machine and thought that using system restore would fix everything. To be 13 again...
