Consequences of restoring a system to its factory default are as follows :




  • Getting rid of spyware

  • Loss of data from hard drive

  • Removal of drivers



Getting rid of spyware



Spyware are programs which get installed on your computer and collect bits of information about you, each time you use the system. You can protect your system from the malware attacks by performing system restore to its factory default settings. Restoring a computer to its original factory settings also cleans up the local drive and removes all the viruses and old programs that slow down a computer’s performance and make it non-responsive.



Loss of data from hard drive



You will lose all the data saved on the system after system restore. System restore will make the system go back to a previous session. So the system files and applications installed after that period will be deleted. You will lose your favorite programs and files like pictures, music and documents after the date of system restoration. This could be voided if you have a backup copy of all the necessary data stored for future use, before restoring the system settings to factory default.



Removal of drivers


All the data and software programs saved on the system might be lost forever when you perform system restore. You will lose the driver software files needed for the effective functioning of the peripheral devices installed in your Gateway® SX2800 series. You need to reinstall the drivers of Gateway® SX2800 series desktops for the proper functioning of the devices after system restore.
