If one gets a virus will doing a system restore in XP correct the problem. My friend seems to think so rather that buying virus software
A great big NO - your friend will be in a lot of bother without Anti-virus on his/her PC.Cheers.
Anyway, there are plenty of Free programs available to download click here and click here and click here these three are the minimum safety measures you should have.Cheers.
I have AVG, Zonealarm, A2, spyblaster and yahoo spyware on my computer and I did not think that doing a system restore would cure a virus ans if so why buy or instal the free ones. Thanks for your quick reply. Will leave this open for a while and then print and give him any more replies
Viruses can be stored in System Restore points which is why SR should be turned off when cleaning infected machines click hereSo your friend has a Very Bad Idea!
If I disable system restore, clean then renable do I lose all the restore points upto the disablement? :-)
Yes. There are ways of getting at individual restore points to delete them but it is complicated and not worth it in my opinion.
Thanks for your quick replies
