I have content editor on my team site where I added several links. But today while adding some new links, content editor crashed. so now when I tried to open site containing content editor, browser stop working.

The quick solution is: I can delete the existing content editor and create a new one (using ?contents=1 in the corrupted team site). But since my content editor contains lot of links, so is there a way where I can roll back content editor to previous version (till yesterday afternoon)?

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Even if you have versioning enabled in the library, the contents of a Content Editor Web Part is not affected by that, as far as I know. The only way I can think of is to restore the page from your server/system backups.

That's the only way, hope you have a good backup – Eric Alexander Feb 1 '13 at 0:58
