    McAfee suggests disabling the System Restore function on your
    operating system as part of recommend anti-virus techniques. What
    does System Restore do, and is this good advice?

    It is, if you wish to be stuck with an operating system crippled because
    McAfee crapware let a virus get through and you don't have any restore
    points to fall back upon.
