I suggest you fix the cause rather than attempting a restore. Start by running a full scan for viruses using a bootable rescue disk. I'm a fan of BitDefender but there are plenty of others on this list:

Make sure that you first back up all of your important files onto external media and confirm access on another machine.
What has been the problem with the system that you would do a restore? Even a factory restore?
If the 'old' system restore (left over from Windows 7) is active (not by default) then you may be able to use that.
If you can confirm that there is no malware present and causing the problem (run AV & Malwarebytes) then you can reboot into Safe Mode with Networking and run Tweaking.com to repair the system. Run all of the recommended pre scan steps first.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Have you checked your harddrive for errors?
