I am trying to comply and follow the Malware Cleaning Guide. I use Windows XP Professional and am not able to access the - More Options Tab under the System Restore - #2. When I click on System Restore, I am only given 2 options, Restore Back or Create a new Restore point. I am not given the option to choose Clean Up.

Please instruct me as to where to look for this option/what to do.

Thanks

The option to delete all but the last restore point is found under the More Options of the Disk Cleanup utility
Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup

What guide are you following? I may be missing something but I have never run across a more button in system restore, and the only way I know to clear system restore points is to shut off system restore, then reboot your computer and then re-enable system restore.

Nothing is wrong. There are only 2 options on that screen.

If you want to clean old restore points follow directions in this link.

(go to disk cleanup first)

Yeah, I found that option now. Goes to show you are never to old to learn. I never use System Restore on any of my computers at home, I have it shut off on all of them. Not advocating the lack of use for any one else, I myself have never felt the need to use it nor have ever been in the position to need it.

I have needed a Restore point yet either, but the day I do I'll have one. Doesn't hurt to make one before downloading and installing programs or before making any major changes.
