My computer was infected with various viruses last week. Some of which seemed to have affected Explorer.exe (when I turned on the PC the taskbar + desktop would not load also Explorer.exe would crash RIGHT after I tried running it through the task manager) Also I couldn't play video files, nor could I access windows update through IE, and system restore would not load (Although it was turned on I couldn't even access it in safe mode).

Anyway, I ran various programs such as SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, and Avira Antivirus and got rid of lots of infections (the only one I remember the name to was was Vundo though).

Anyway, since then my Explorer shell seemed to have fixed itself so I could access the taskbar and the desktop. But my computer was still running slow and i sometimes got a bsod.

Since then I have run Uniblue's Registry Booster 2 (which found 717 and fixed 716 errors), Speed up my PC 3 and Spy Eraser (which found nothing).

Now my PC is running fast, and I haven't gotten anymore BSODs. But some problems still persist:

-When I try accessing System restore it tells me it's unable to protect my computer and I should restart. After restarting the same message would still pop up if I tried to access it. I also get the same message if i try to disable system restore.

-When I try going to the windows update page in IE 'http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/' nothing pops up even though the browser states that it's 'Done'.

These aren't exactly urgent problems that need to be fixed or anything, I'd just like to know whats wrong or if I might still have a virus.

Also I'm not sure if there are any other problems within IE since I always use Firefox (which is running fine btw).

Thank You.
