Standard user accounts provide for better security and lower total cost of ownership in both home and corporate environments. When users run with standard user rights instead of administrative rights, the security configuration of the system, including antivirus and firewall, is protected. This provides users a secure area that can protect their account and the rest of the system. For enterprise deployments, the policies set by desktop IT managers cannot be overridden, and on a shared family computer, different user accounts are protected from changes made by other accounts.

System restore will not affect your user accounts. See this tutorial.

I think it would depend on what software you use to backup/image and restore. Are you talking about the builtin method or some other imaging software such as Acronis?

not exactly.I make the restore point and back up by Win7 itself.
In my view , I make the restore point in my common account when I restore it. It should not affect my administor account. But actually It influenced.

May be there are something wrong with my opreation.
