Hey everyone. Here's my info:
Windows Vista Home Premium
Service Pack 2
Dell Inspiron 1525

Right now I'm operating in Safe Mode with Networking because Normal Mode wouldn't let me run Microsoft Security Essentials to fix a virus. The virus is one of those fake security system ones that won't let me run any programs. Anyway, the virus is not my main problem I think.

I want to turn on System Restore. Windows Help & Support leads a walkthrough that opens System for me. Once there, the tutorial says to open System Protection. Once that is does, it says "To turn on System Protection, select the check box next to the disc, then click OK."

In my version, there is no check box. I'm very confused. Thanks in advance everyone!

No I do not. I'm afraid I'm not the most computer literate person. MSE is running a custom scan of "drive C:/" or something like that. When it's done, I can hop back on normal mode and probably get the name of the virus. Would that help?

That would help us greatly.
