So why not simply use VirtualBox or something similar and instal Windows 7 as a virtual machine? Ever since I started poking around the system files to customize the OS I'd test it in a VM first.
I'm not sure what a System Restore type of function (i.e. restoring to "X") has to do with the regular usage of Win 7. But the answer to your question is that, being a legal professional, I need the functions of the full Windows and MS Office Suites loaded onto my system.

PS Although, testing apps in a vm IS a good idea --- but once tested and approved, I prefer (and need) to download them.

Exactly my thought, but when it comes to customizing the OS by changing the system files, you can never be too sure that everything would work flawlessly, hence the probable need to have another Windows 7 in VM for testing purposes only. I recently started doing this myself and the method is a real lifesaver in many occasions.
