I had some PC infections the other day, but thanks to the help on here, they are all gone now. Right now I do not have any infections, but if I get some anytime soon or in the future, should I do the System Restore after fixing the infections?

I was instructed to do System Restore the other day after removing the infections, but should I continue to use the System Restore after each time my computer is infected? When and how often should I use System Restore?

It's a good idea to flush system restore from time to time, especially after you rebooted after an infection has been removed

Boop's post is the safest way to do it

This can be incorporated into general maintenance with running the rest of disk cleanup before a defrag

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
