System Restore my last resort


Recommended Posts

If I do a system restore of recovery will the xp internet security 2010 virus still be on my computer?

I think it will, depending on if the xp internet security 2010 was on your computer before your last system restore point, if this is the case then you can't rid of it that way, well someone from Malwarebytes should be able to help better than I can , but if they fail you can if you want try reformating your hard drive, if you know how to do that
