Only one warning, by disabling system restore, if something goes wrong, you have nothing to fall back on. I don't care what Symantec says, you should never disable your system restore until the system is clean, and then only to flush out the restore.
The System restore is only a snapshot of your system at a given time. Malware does not rewrite itself out of your system restore.
I would rather start over with an infected restore point than have to reformat and reinstall my OS.
