I believe the System Recovery should be fine. If you rewind back to the dates before the installation of new hardware, you will most likely need to re-install the drivers for those hardware.
However, your system recovery may also recovery back the malware/virus/warms.
I would strongly recommend you to back up all your documents (including your photos, video clips, music... etc anything you created) to a back up media (e.g. CDs, DVDs, external HDDs, flash drives, or even network storage) before applying system recovery.
Although painful, but a clean reinstall of Windows may work better than System Recovery, if you have all you documents backed up.
