Can Windows 7 be restored to the original Registry settings

I've made changes to my registry and no longer have the original backup.  Is it possible to restore Win7 to the original installation, without losing programs already installed?

Go back to the date when you first installed the OS.

I furthest it shows is 1/24/2012.  OS was installed before that.  How can I go further.

You probably had too much data and it was pruning.

sounds like best way to go is to do a Windows 7 repair install.
