system restore to fix corrupt files?

do you think I can use system restore to go back to the point before I used driver to fix my scf /scannow corrupted ati files? as of now, the system restore point I can use is not far enough to fix . every time I use the system restore, will it make a better restore date?

If your oldest restore point does not go back far enough then you cannot use system restore to solve your problem. There is no way to create a restore point older than currently exists. Use of system restore will create a new restore point and that may force deletion of an older restore point.
