Some of the major problems in Windows 8 are caused by Windows Registry, DLL files and device drivers. System restore points take a current copy of all Windows registry files, DLL files and other important Windows files. System restore points can be restored using system restore tool in Windows 8. This tutorial will explain how to troubleshoot issues using the system restore tool in windows 8.
To run Windows 8 System Restore follow the below steps :
Click Next and the below screen will appear and then select the point of restore that you want and click Next. A list of all your restore points will be listed here, note that you can’t restore to a specific date that has no restore point.

Windows 8 System Restore will now start and it will restart your system.
If the problem is not resolved, you may repeat the System Restore using an older restore point.
