Deleting history by accident in Windows Vista is not a permanent mistake. Windows' System Restore is a system tool that comes preinstalled on all versions of Windows Vista. System Restore automatically makes "shadow" copies of your entire operating system every time a significant change occurs. For example, if a new program is installed, System Restore will create a "restore point" on that date. The purpose of this is to enable Windows users to reset their computer to a past configuration if they installed malware or deleted something important by mistake.
