Why create a manual restore point?

My Windows 7-64 was installed in Oct. 2009 as an upgrade to Vista. I never fiddled with the Vista OR the Win 7 security settings, and I currently have a bunch or restore points "available" - too many to be worth counting. I tried restoring to two different, relatively recent, points but both of the attempts failed. What good is this system?

HP Pavilion m9500t, Windows 7-64 bit, all updates current (automatic).
