Yesterday i became infected with an Ukash virus. In a stupid attempt to correct the problem, i restarted the laptop in safe mode and used a system restore point. My laptop is no longer 'locked' but i can tell that my system is still infected with the Ukash virus. I can't access certain sites (including this one), either it says that i cannot connect to this site or that certificate error thingy pops up stating the presence of malicious malware.  


What's the best way of dealing with this virus especially after using system restore?


Any advice appreciated!
