Microsoft's "system restore point" is not the original concept, but still does a fairly decent job. It takes a snapshot of critical system files and saves it before a major system change such as installing new programs or Windows components. This way, if the upgrade goes sour and screws up your system, "system restore" can use one of those snapshots to attempt to return the system to a functioning state.
