when you do a system restore does it restore everything and i mean everything
to the time that you pick or does it just reinstall windows files to that
point?

No only the registry and some system files. It does nothing for data
files. SR is not a replacement for having a current and full backup.
SR can work well but within it's limits. Here is a good link for info on
system restore:

Yes. The registry and other system files.

Do not think of System Restore as a backup technique. It does
nothing for your data files and that isn't its purpose. It's
meant only to recover the operating system.
