All the new bad trojans and other nasty infections on your Windows computer like to hang out in the system restore files. That’s right even after cleaning a spyware riddled machine the unknowing subject can unwillingly wind up re-infecting their computers by launching system restore. Stop that before it happens. Disable system restore and then re-enable it to knock them out the box.
