The term system restore can mean 2 different things.

The answer to your question lies in how YOU define system restore.

Do you mean reinstall Windows 7 when you say system restore? This will cause you to lose everything on your computer.
Backing up anything you don't want to lose will allow you to copy back to the computer after the OS reinstall.
Many people call this a "system restore" when in reality it is a system recovery.

What system restore is:

System Restore uses restore points to return your system files and settings to an earlier point in time, without affecting personal files. For more information, see What is System Restore?

System Restore affects Windows system files, programs, and registry settings. It can also make changes to scripts, batch files, and other types of executable files on your computer.

System Restore does not affect personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos, so it cannot help you restore a deleted file. If you have backups of your files, you can restore the files from a backup.
