Sometimes this method of recovery works but other times it may not since System Restore was not designed to be a virus or malware removal tool. Whether it will be successful depends on what type of infection you are dealing with, what damage the malware has already caused, whether it disabled System Restore and if not, what is restored during the process.
I selected a recovery point a little before desaster had hit me - and this went fine. Apparenly the system is as before the nfection and - as far as I could test up to now - works fine.
This leaves me somewhat in doubt if this was really all that I will see about this or if this malware is just lurking somewhere ready to hit again.
NO. System Restore was not designed to be a virus or spyware removal tool and should not be depended on.
That's entirely up to you....although it couldn't hurt as a precaution.
Am I through with it or should I act as detailed in the Preparation Guide and start a new call-for-help-thread ?
