Disabling System Restore as a step when attempting to clean a system or when scanning for malware is not advisable. Unfortunately, some anti-virus vendors recommend disabling System Restore before attempting malware removal which is not a good practice when dealing with infected computer systems. Turning System Restore off and then turning it back on has some risk associated with it since that feature does not always work as intended. Further, there is always a possibility of something going wrong during the malware removal process and you end up with more problems. Without a restore point to fall back on, you are then stuck with a limited means of restoring your system such as a Repair Install or Reformat. Although System Restore is not 100% guaranteed to work all the time, it at least gives you another option. When your system is clean, then you can create a new Restore Point and purge the old ones to prevent accidental re-infection.
I am very nervous about disabling my restore function. Is that what I must do?

I would not recommend that you remove SP2. BTW, what version of IE do you have?
Should I uninstall Windows XP SP2 and see if there is a difference in my IE?
