True that, although it's mainly when something is installed with the SR feature.

Windows 7 → disabled
Windows XP (when I use to have it) → removed it from the OS

Every time I tried to use System restore it never worked, but on Vista I do use the Windows Computer Backup that works like a charm.

Yup. I just used it yesterday. I installed some sketchy application to crack my phone and afterwards I used system restore to make sure my PC was fine.
