    Accidentally Deleted The System Restore App for Windows 8.


    I accidentally deleted the system restore function on Windows 8.1 and all of my restore points. Now when I click on this program I get nothing. How can I fix this? Not that computer savvy, so please explain in detail. Thanks

    I don't think you can undelete the restore points but you can create a new one whenever you want.

    Follow this tutorial from EightForums written by Brink if you would like to try it.

    Downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems. I used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
