If my system should lock up such that I can't get to the Start
Menu, Ctrl-Alt-Del won't help, etc., how might I still access System
Restore?

Hi,

1. Restart your computer, and then press F8 during the initial startup to start your
computer in Safe Mode with a command prompt.

2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has
administrator credentials.

3. Type or paste the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an
earlier state, or undo the last restore if available.
