Restore points are saved in the System Volume Information folder which is a hidden, protected folder at the root of the drive. It should be possible to unhide it, alter permissions, then copy off one or more points and burn to dvd. But it would be very fussy and one might ned to be outside windows.

You are much better off imaging the OS partition and system reserved partition (if you have one) using the inbuilt Backup/restore tool or a 3rd party tool like Macrium. Tinkering with the system volume information folder is not the best way to go about things.

Can you boot into Win7? If so install, update and run a Full Scan with Malwarebyte.

Then install free Avast 5 or MS Security Essentials to run with the Win7 Firewall which must be kept updated via Windows updates.

Then run SFC -SCANNOW Command to check System files for damage. Turn on System Protection in Control Panel.

If you can't boot Win7, see if you can boot into Safe Mode to run Malwarebytes,

then run Startup Repair from DVD or Repair CD: Startup Repair - Windows 7 Forums

Let us know what happens.
