Solution:


Your user files were not affected when the system was reverted to the restore point.

You must reinstall any applications that were installed after the restore point was taken.

Explanation

After reverting the system to a prior restore point in this scenario, the following facts are true:

- Your user files were not affected when the system was reverted to the restore point.

- You must reinstall any applications that were installed after the restore point was taken.

On Windows 8.1 and later, restore points contain snapshots of system files, registry settings, program files and any other batch, script, or executable files. When you restore a system to a restore point, previous settings are restored while subsequent changes are removed. For example, any applications installed after the restore point was created are no longer installed. However, user data is not affected when reverting to a restore point. Any changes made to user data after a restore point created are retained if the restore point is restored.
