If you didn't set a restore point, im afraid you will have to do a clean re-install.

Even if you DID, you still could not roll back your computer to a previous date. System Restore is not an image backup, instead, it should be called Operating System Restore -- as what it really does, is when a restore point is created, it saves off system files and settings -- but not data files. So, it's not the same as a "time machine" app.
