    When you system restore, it just restores it to when you made that restore file right?

    Yes...when either you made a restore point or, if you have System Restore running, one of the dates that the operating sytem made a restore point.

    Be advised that it only restores system files, not programs and data files.

    If you want something to restore the system completely to an earlier date, you need to buy and install software like GoBack.
