As an immigrant from Win98, I'm unfamiliar with System Restore. My questions are:

1. Is it really something I want to take advantage of? I am the kind of guy who plunges in to try new software, and lots of new tricks, so I not infrequently really muck up my system (to my regret). Is System Restore for me?

2. If so, should I, from time to time, update whatever it is that System Restore does to store the current state of the system? How do I do that? How often is it good practice to do that?

1. System restore uses some disk space, but there's really little reason not to use it. Think of it as insurance against the unexpected. If you ever need it, you'll be glad it's there.

2. System restore will update automatically, whenever making changes to your system.
