Running xp pro . Had a pretty bad virus. Seemed to get rid of it. System restore will not let me turn it off, and it only ever says, "system restore is unable to protect your computer" Please help. Exhausted all avenues.

Can you try to check the system restore service?
The startup type should be automatic and service status should be started.
( when you click on start and run, type services.msc to check the system restore service )

What did you use to clean the virus?

Do you have more than one hdd?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
