Using RESTORE POINT with system updates

I'm trying to resolve why my computer has become sooooo slow in the last week or two.
I downloaded some Microsoft IE critical fixes a week or so ago and want to get the system back to before that. I don't know that this is the problem, it just looked like a logical move.
Can I go to the restore point before installing the critical fixes? If I were doing this with some 3rd party application I would uninstall the application then go the restore point, then reinstall. How do I do this though with updates and fixes to IE and XP?
Please educate me. Thank you.
I'm using Win XP Home Edition 2002 SP1 on a Dell Dimension 8100 with a Pentium 4 1.6 GHz processor. IE is version 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.x
Thanks.

If you want to you can delete the hotfixes from add/remove but just using restore will negate them.
