If you are willing to replace updates to programs, and any other changes you made Dec 8th to now,
that is the reason to use System Restore.
Your data remains in restores.
Make sure the data (like music files, videos, word docs)
you placed on your PC isn't a bloodhound56 thing, huh?
Yes, you can restore to a date prior and probably get rid of it.
Patch the OS with updates, immediately thereafter.
Seems some bloodhounds were kinda indicating exploitability
was available ... and as such were kinda a goad to purchase
more and better protection from "for pay" outfits like Norton.
I had one of those in Microsoft Anti-Spyware Beta and I think
also Pest Patrol ...
but presently, in a changing malware climate, each case may
differ, so ... keep an eye on results.
