i have xp and have had unsuccessful restores, it usually happens when u install something that changes **** around so much that for some reason it cant restore it or when u try to restore back to a time way before like a mth ago it usually wont do it, i kno whats the point if half the time theyre unsuccessful but its microsucks so 50/50 isnt that bad i guess, best thing u could really do is back up the registry before something big if there is a possibility of something bad happening, that way if restore wont work u can try to delete the program folder and all the other stuff it made and then try to merge the back up reg file and hopefully put everything back the way it was, basically doing a manual restore, i backup my registry about once a week if i remember to that way if something terrible happens and restore wont work i have a second option besides reinstalling
