System restore is VERY useful. If you are planning on protecting yourself for possible future problems then consider also learning about/doing some of these:
1- Create a Windows 7 Repair Disk.
2- Create a Recovery Disk Set
3- Create a Password Recovery Disk (on a flash drive or CD)
4- Set up Windows Back up to an external hard drive to back up your files
5- Use Windows Back up to make an image of your C Drive to an external hard drive for restore purposes.
6- Consider shrinking you C Drive and moving your files to a second partition on your hard drive so repairing or reimaging or otherwise recovering your C Drive does not effect your files (even though your back up protects those).
7- Put copies onto a flash drive or CD/DVD of your drivers, downloaded installers, a document with all of your settings typed out, Downloaded utilities, and anything you think you might need if you have to reinstall everything.

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