We have windows Vista Home Basic. awhile back AVG detected Alureon. i scanned with AVG and MBAM, thought it was removed and used system restore to day prior to getting virus. i have done many scans since in and out of safe mode with both and they often clean trojan fake alerts, trojan downloaders, located in TEMP or system 32. many times they will find no threats and i think im ok but then ill get a black hole detection, or google will redirect, and more trojans show up on next scan. Also had "Internet Security" shortcut show up on my desktop one day. at this point im not even sure which is the root cause. A couple years back i had success using Rkill to get rid of My Security Engine. Any suggestions?

After removal of virus, delete old restore points except the most recent.

Actually you will delete all restore points and create a new one. But this will be done after the cleaning.. Do not do it prior.
