If you clear a virus is it necassary to then also turn off System Restore to remove any infection there and then turn it on again? If so is the procedure straightforward?
Thanks.

As VoG™ and you need to turn it off. Most reinfections that I see are due to Sys restore being left on. Make sure that you turn it back on after cleaning and set a new restore point. It is an idea to keep a seperate copy (DVD/CDR/Ext.HD) of any important documents etc. as system restore does have faults.
