Windows 7: Has restore been improved in Windows 7?

Has restore been improved in Windows 7?

Everytime I've used Restore in Windows Me or XP it never worked correctly. Since I've installed Windows 7, I had one issue and was thinking about doing a restore but instead, I just did a reinstall.

If I have a backup and a system image, is Restore a viable option for fixing/diagnosing problems? On my previous install I had a driver issue and just wiped the drive clean and started over.

I have used Resore Points several times with Windows 7 and it has always helped. It's a great option but not a replacement for a complete backup. I use it normally when I have been doing something on my computer and it doesn't work out like it should. I just go to a Restore Point reboot and update things that need updating.
