Microsoft Windows Security - Create A Restore Point
If you already installed the security updates for Windows OS, the next step recommended is to create a restore point in Windows.
You can do this by clicking on the Start button, then select Control Panel -> System and Maintenance (or System and Security) -> System. Then select System protection and click the Create button.
After installing Windows, you can create the Restore Point and name it Clean installation, and continue installing drivers and applications.
If one of the drivers causes issues on the system, you can always go back to the Clean installation restore point.
