exactly what I did, I really wanted to cover my bases, so i opted for the restore, from almost a month ago, my only regret is that i dont think i backed up my Steam game saves since then.
. I got the system restore running for about 30min now it really shoudnt be alot to alter so hopefully it will be done soon.
funny note. i've owned dozens of systems, mostly manufactured by a big boy. this is the first system i actually have a Windows DVD, i was a little excited to actually use it since installation. I hate this recovery partion BS
