system restore point only gives me dec 6. I want to use date earlier than this, from Nov. but restore calendar will not go back to anything prior to Dec. yes, I picked up malware but have always fixed it by going back. i picked up the malware on the 6th as luck would have it. shouldnt i be able to go back to the prior month? if not then i will proceed with malware removal described in other forums. just wanted to get this question answered first. thanx.

It depends how much space you gave your system restore. The default is 90 days.

You can change the alloted disk space by right-clicking on My Computer and selecting Properties and then the tab System Restore. Click on Settings and make sure the bar is over to the right.

Do you think this was the problem?

Have you checked your computer for malware?
