Windows 7: System Restore Points with full or only partial Registry backup?

System Restore Points with full or only partial Registry backup?

Assume I create a System Restore Point.
Is a full Registry backup included?
or only a partial backup for all branches which are core Windows 7 related?

By the way: Is each SRP independent from the others?

If I delete lets say the 3rd out of 5 SRPs.
Are the two 2 SRPs following the third still valid?

Or do SRP depend from the preceding chain of SRPs (because they are only a kind of differential, delta backups)

All Restore Points are separate of each other.
Removing a Restore Point does not effect the other Restore Points.

Here is some information that will answer all kinds of questions.

System Restore isn't creating (or saving?) restore points properly
For some reason my System Restore function isn't automatically creating (or isn't showing) System Restore points as it should be doing for "major" system events (e.g., isn't automatically creating restore points before/after Windows Updates and software/driver updates). I'm not sure if it isn't...
