xp question

What, if any, is the difference between doing a system restore, or booting from last known good configuration?

Re: xp question

are you referring to a system restore via system tools, or a factory reinstall (where the pc is as if it just came out of the box)

 

edit:

last known configuration takes the computer back to the most recent working settings.

with system restore, you are taking the computer back to a previous time with no gurantee that it is at a point where the settings work. no files are lost, but programs made from that restore point to present are lost.

factory reinstall takes computer back to the very beginning, as if you just opened the box.
