You might be able to do something like that with vLite - Windows Vista configuration tool (says Vista but works with Windows 7 too).

You would be much better off to do image backups of your hard drive. That way you not only have all applications but also all data.

It would be much easier if you took an image of your system and restored the image when needed. An image restore takes only 20 minutes and restores everything that was on the system when the image was taken.

For starters, have a look at this: Imaging with free Macrium

Reinstalls have been replaced with backup imaging to reimage your HD or its replacement in 20 minutes with everything in place and ready to go.

Only rarely do you need to clean reinstall if the image doesn't solve a problem but it should take you back to the exact performance when it was made.
