I want to install a virus removal tool, but do not know how to disable the windows XP restore system. I have been advised to do this as the restore system would just restore the virus. Help! Please! It is urgent! Thanks. Erma

click Start. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. Click the System Restore tab. Select "Turn off System Restore" Click Apply. When the message appears click yes.
Install your tool,remove virus,and then restart your computer.
To turn it back on click Start/ My Compter and then Properties/Click the System Restore tab/Clear the "Turn off System Restore"/ Click Apply, and then click OK. Hope this Helps and not to late. It worked for me as I found this online.
