Protect Your System Files
System Restore is a Windows operating system feature that
enables you to undo harmful changes to your notebook software
by restoring your software to an earlier time, called a restore
point, when your software was functioning optimally.
Restore points are restorable, benchmark “snapshots” of your
application, driver, and operating system files. The notebook sets
restore points at regular intervals and might set additional restore
points whenever you change your personal settings or add
software or hardware.
Manually setting additional restore points provides additional
protection for your system files and settings. It is recommended
that you manually set restore points
■
Before you add or extensively modify software or hardware.
■
Periodically, whenever the system is performing optimally.
Restoring to any restore point does not affect your data files. For
example, restoring your system software to an earlier time will
not affect documents or e-mails that you saved after that time. All
System Restore procedures are reversible.
Setting a Restore Point
To set a system restore point manually:
1. Select Start > Help and Support > System Restore.
A System Restore window opens.
2. Follow the on-screen directions for setting a restore point.

When you use the notebook for Internet access, e-mail, or
networking, it is possible for unauthorized persons to obtain
information about you, your notebook, and your data. Firewall
software monitors incoming traffic on your computer by
including features such as logging and reporting, automatic
alarms, and user interfaces for configuring the firewall. Some
firewalls also monitor outgoing traffic. To protect your privacy, it
is recommended that you
■
Keep your Windows operating system updated. Many
Windows updates contain security enhancements. For
information about updating Windows, refer to the Hardware
and Software Guide located in the Help and Support Center.

System Recovery
The notebook system recovery process provides several ways to
recover optimal system functionality. For best results, attempt
to recover optimal notebook functionality by using the following
procedures in the order described here.
Safeguarding Your Data
Software or devices added to the notebook can cause your system
to become unstable. To safeguard your documents, store personal
files in the My Documents folder and periodically create a
backup copy of the My Documents folder.
Getting Started
A–1
System Recovery
Altiris Local Recovery
Altiris Local Recovery is a preloaded application that protects the
files on your notebook by storing copies of files, called snapshots.
If files on your notebook are accidentally deleted or corrupted,
you can easily restore the files yourself. You can also restore your
complete file system to a previous state.
Altiris Local Recovery provides protection of files by backing up
files to a hidden Altiris recovery partition. When you install the
software, the Recovery Agent Partition Wizard guides you
through the process of creating the recovery partition. After the
partition is created, the notebook restarts and creates the first
snapshot. After the snapshot is created, the notebook restarts,
making the snapshot available for recovery through Windows.
By default, Local Recovery automatically takes snapshots of your
files on a regular basis. You can change the snapshot schedule.
For more information, refer to the Altiris Local Recovery Help.
To access your snapshots in the Altiris Recovery Agent folder:
1. Right-click the Altiris Recovery Agent icon on your desktop.
2. Click Open.
To restore one of the listed snapshots:
»
Drag the snapshot file to the appropriate location on your
hard drive.
For more information on configuring and using Altiris Local
Recovery, visit the HP Web site at http://www.hp.com/go/easydeploy,
or open the software and click Help on the menu bar.

System Restore Points
System Restore is an operating system feature that allows you to
reverse undesirable changes to your notebook by restoring the
notebook to an earlier state, called a restore point. A restore point
is a “snapshot” of your software, drivers, and operating system
files at a particular time. The notebook automatically creates
restore points at regular intervals and may create additional
restore points when you change your personal settings or add
software or hardware.
You can manually create additional restore points to provide
increased protection for your system files and settings. It is
recommended that you manually create restore points
■
Before you add or extensively modify software or hardware.
■
Periodically, whenever the system is performing optimally.
Restoring to any restore point does not affect your data files. For
example, restoring your system software to an earlier state will
not affect documents or e-mails that you saved after that time.
