System Restore is a nice tool that let's you undo changes - but it will not restore your system to exactly the state it was in when you use it.
There are several programs available for this purpose, but they just don't seem to (IMO) work quite right. In particular I've had many bad experiences with Norton's GoBack - I recommend staying away from it!!!
The other method is to image your hard drive on a regular basis - that way you can go back to any date that you choose. The drawback here is that the images are very large - so you'll need a lot of storage just to save them.
Finally, there's Microsoft's free "Steady State" tool (the tool formerly known as the "Shared Computer Toolkit") - it'll allow you to restore to the state that you specify when setting it up. I haven't use this one in quite a while, so I can't speculate on how it works.
