Re: Malicious Adware

I am dead serious.
At least twice in this past year alone, I have instructed victims to use system restore after attempting to clean the computer. Certain infections make the system so unstable that it is a deck of cards waiting to fall down.

The system restore files cannot be modified easily, as many of the API calls are disabled. I'm not saying it can't be done, but 99% of malware files out there today are not capable of regenerating themselves from system restore.

be a last resort option. An infected restore point is better than none at all.

Now that is what I call an intelligent saying or comment . You are not serious of course?
