Hopefully yes. However if you try and fail you can always undo the restore and get back to where you are now. So it must be worth trying, always provided it wasn`t too long ago.

System Restore reverses changes to your computer system and settings. All files and folders are left unaffected.

If you have deleted a file or folder it will not be recovered by System Restore.
