I had aquired a nasty virus called virtumonde or something.
I had a bunch of spyware and virus cleaners take care of it and now it is off of my system.
I am now aware that some of my registry files were removed and i think that this virus has corrupted the files of my system restore.
I would like to restore the computer to an earlier state just to be safe nothing is left that i am missing.
Now when i try to run the system restore i can get up to the point where the computer restarts and all, and the window then pops up saying that the Restore has failed.
I am aware the restore is on, and there is plenty of space for it to function.
So the only way i see this not working is becase some of the files are corrupt or were deleted.
At the moment i know of one solution. i think i can turn the restore off, then reboot, then put the restore back on, however by doing this would deleted all saved reset points. If i dont have the reset points prior to when my PC got the virus i dont see the point.
I was wondering if i could delete the file that had to do with the restore completely then put in my Xp windows cd and get the uncorrupted files of the "good" restore to be replaced and put on my computer?
If any one has any advice or thinks that there is another way besides deleting all my prior restore points please let me know.
I thank you.
