WHAT IS SYSTEM RESTORE?
System Restore enables users to restore their computers to a
previous state without losing personal data files (e.g.documents,
graphic files, e-mail).
System Restore actively monitors system file changes and some
application file changes to record or store previous versions
before the changes occurred.
How to remove an infection in System Restore
In the System Restore folder, individual files cannot be
deleted as this would put the integrity of the Restore archive at
risk. Infections located in the System Restore folder are harmless,
unless a restore point that contains the infection is used. If the
infected restore point is not used, it will be soon replaced by
other restore points, thereby deleting the infection.
To manually delete an infected restore point, a simple procedure
can be followed (for WINDOWS XP users).
1. Click the Start button, then go to

4. If you click on the Advanced system settings
you will find the System Restore options.
5. In the newly opened window, go to the System
Protection tab. Uncheck all entries in the
Available Disks list
(in this case is only one).
When prompted, choose the Turn System Restore
To re-enable the System Restore, follow the steps again, but
check the entries in the Available Disks list.
The System Restore feature can only be turned off from an
Administrator account. If you are using a limited account in
Windows Vista, please contact your system administrator.
