If your Vista desktop workstation is slow or shows signs of system imbalance, you can use the installation CD or DVD to reset your computer to a state where it was working properly. The Windows Vista installation disc contains several recovery programs that provide troubleshooting tips, including the Memory Analyzer Tool and the Repair ITC Troubleshooter. It also has a System Restore option that restores the workflow to an earlier state without affecting any documents or files. This can be especially useful when new policies change or newly installed device personnel cause unwanted behavior.
