How do I turn off system restore in windows 98 to run my anti virus programme. I have 2 trojans but and want to run agv virus scanner but cant find system restore.

That's because Windows 98 does not have System Restore.

In Windows ME and XP the System Restore feature saves snapshots of your system files in Restore Points. It is possible that a virus/trojan could be stored in one of those points. That is why it can be important to turn off System Restore, to flush those restore points, before scanning.

In your case, you do not have to worry about this - just scan.

If AVG cannot find and/or remove the infection then try using a² click here
