System Restore is a valuable tool, and may save you from having to reinstall everything in case of problems.
The malware problem with System Restore is easily remedied, but I'd retain the points "just in case".
If you're going to backup all your data to removable devices, I'd also suggest backing up your registry to a removable device. With that done, all you'll lose is your customized settings (the one's that aren't retained in the registry).
Here's a link to a nice, free registry backup tool called ERUNT: http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/
