I've currently got a pesky case of redirect/hijack adware. I also have a full C: backup prior to the infection. (The amount of data difference is pretty inconsequential.) I have heard that NTbackup is a crude, cranky, and a little shaky in terms of getting a clean full restore out of it and that there are better backup utilities around. I don't know how true that is. I don't want to lose or corrupt a bunch of files or a hijack irritant. I need to fix it.
So - what's better? Doing the long slow manual adware extraction (I'm already posted in that forum), OR, doing an NTrestore to eliminate the adware.
