Windows XP SP2 upgrade

Reading the answer to the XP SP2 upgrade, the question arises from the answer given by Miguel?
Does not Windows XP already have a system restore allowance, and with SP2 upgrade is it necessary to set up a system restore allocation when it already exists?

Or in my limited scope of computer knowledge it is necessary to set a new system restore allocation because of the system restore?

I am currently running an HP Pavilion sytem, with Windows XP SP2 installed, and am experiencing difficulty with what I believe is conflict with systems.

I run antivirus software from Sophos, and recently downloaded Ad-aware SE to clean out the malware. Since then, the entire system is acting for lack of a better word; spastic.

Specifically it can't be nailed down, but unexplained events occur.
