Hi all at Bleep

Have recently had some malware removed by one of the experts at the malware removal forum and during the combofix installation, combofix installed windows recovery consul on my computer. Now this isn't causing me any problems and my PC is running just fine but I have noticed that my system restore appears to be switched off.

If I click on system restore a pop up tells me that system restore is switched off - do I want to switch it on Yes / No. Since my malware topic now closed and unsure as to whether or not system restore will conflict with windows recovery, I thought I would ask for advice before I go messing about.

Many thanks

YOu should be able to turn it back on provided there is no trace of the malware that originally infected your computer. Turning off System restore removes all the old restore points so it is a good idea to turn it back on again and create a new restore point giving it a name that lets you know that it was created after the malware removal. It will have a date attached to it but I find it easier and faster if I give it a name that I can instantly see what point in time I am restoring.

Hi Baloo

Many thanks for your reply. The malware problem is totally clear, so I'll go ahead and do as you have suggested.

Kind regards

Sam
