When we use Windows that has just finished installation, we can feel the performance of Windows is quite good. Windows feels fast and light when we open files, applications, or other things.
Over time, the longer the Windows we use, the slower we feel and the worse the error often appears. Errors that appear like “Not responding” or “blue screen” are certainly very disturbing.
The causes of these errors from Windows are many, it can be due to updates from Windows, installation of applications/programs, windows files being damaged, exposed to viruses, and so on.
A quick way to solve all these errors or problems is to reinstall Windows.
Reinstalling Windows might be the easiest way to solve the problem. But what if the PC contains a lot of data files and applications/programs that we really need and the process for installing these applications is not easy. Of course, reinstalling Windows is not the first choice that we will choose, because by reinstalling Windows we will lose all these applications/programs and also we have to make sure that the data files we have will be safe.
There are several ways to repair the damage to Windows that you can try before reinstalling,
- System Restore
