The laptop came loaded with Vista I had it upgraded to Windows 7. If I understand the system image correctly it ran it will give me the current OS not Vista. Correct?

Presuming you mean "Restore to Factory" or similar, it will (or should depending on how the upgrade to 7 was done) return it to Vista.

I am not referring to a system recovery ("Restore to Factory Settings"). I am referring to the system imaging feature in Windows 7. Create a System Image.jpg

You have to create an image first for it to be restored to.

Let me start by saying that I'm not a computer geek.
I am beginning to wonder if I can do this. Exactly how big of an issue is it going to be to create the system image.
Be Specific.

Its quite easy to make an image. Is your machine in a state right now that you want to make an image of it?

Not at this time.
The only issue I'm having is I cannot create a restore point.
It looks like I'm going to have to take the laptop to a computer shop to find out why; and hope that they can resolve the issue.
I did post the question here but I have not heard back from the person that was helping me. (And now I do not remember is user name.)
