    why? Guest

    IIRC, the fix is usually along the lines of -
    a few simple steps like disable system restore, remove restore files.
    Reenable system restore after a clean report.

    But you can check by reading past posts from 24HSHD
    http://groups.google.com/group/24hoursupport.helpdesk?
    looking at the removal notes on the AV vendor sites, or checking
    www.google.com .

    I am sure Mcafee has something on this, then again so does MS for MS
    products there are steps for this sort of thing.

    First you have to disable System Restore before you will be able to clean
    it.
    Once you've gotten rid of the trojan then you can re-enable System Restore
    and all should be well again.

    Right My Computer > System Restore > Turn off System Restore on all drives.

    Might want to disable System Restore, clean the trojan , reboot and then
    enable System Restore again.
