System Restore & Unknown Trojan

Hi. While browsing this Forum I was suddenly disconnected and I couldn't get back online so I checked for Spyware and after running PestPatrol it found 3 unknown Trojans with reference to the Kernel32/System file.


When I tried to delete these Trojans I got an error message saying that 'access was denied' so rather than fiddle around I used System Restore and went back 3 days and everything is working okay now but I am just curious as to whether using System Restore wipes any Malware off your PC?
I hasten to add that the Trojan(s) were NOT off the PC Advisor Forums but rather an external link that I clicked on but unfortunately I can't remember which one!
