    System restore


    I have windows 8.1 and cannot find system restore.The last windows update has changed some things on my computer and I would like to go back to an earlier date.I search for the restore,but only get my bookmarks file.The update has changed my zip files icon to a sheet of paper that I cannot open or extract. Please tell me there is a system restore. I should add I have the classic shell not the original windows 8
