System restore has saved my backside a couple of times, but if you use it, lower the amount of space it can use, or else it'll really eat up the hdd space fast.
Never used roxio, but I tried ghost and it didn't work at all for me. The ghosted files were unopenable.
Very well could have been something I did though

Best to back it up to another device.
Once when I tried to use XP restore I found ALL the restore points were corrupt.
