Nope, as they're hidden (among other things) files so they won't show in the Recycle Bin (I do this at work a lot). But, this has me wondering about the actual deletion - or if they just become inaccessible?
At work, we routinely turn off System Restore when removing infections. But, quite often, we'll drop down into a Windows PE environment to clean up some of the mess. And sometimes we'll have to try a "System Restore" from the PE mode - and we use the old restore points to do this. So, I've never noticed a time where (when trying to do a "System Restore") that we haven't been able to because the points had gone missing. That's why I wonder if they're still there. I'll try experimenting with an infected system at work tomorrow morning (as long as the Alzheimer's doesn't kick in!).
