Vista Restore Question

Hey all!

I was infected with malware a few weeks ago, which fenzodahl512 has kindly been helping me with over the last couple of days.

Anyway, we had almost finished the cleanup process, and I was asked to re-set and re-enable my system restore. However, when I went to perform this action, I found out that there were actually no restore points set on the computer.

I was just wondering if this was normal, and whether I should go ahead and create a restore point? Or is there an underlying issue?

I've attached a screencap with the messages I've received:

Thanks in advance for the help!

While this is more of a mal-ware question;
It is normal for the system restore points to be gone after a bad infection clean up.
You should create a restore point at this time.
Some times system restore gets turned off and all of the restore points are lost. Please make sure that system restore is turned on as this is a very important tool.
If you can create a restore point than system restore is turned on.

Hi.. sorry.. I just refer to your picture and make some test to my machine.. could you do this?

Regarding to your above picture.. err.. can you tick at all Available Disk and then click on Apply >> Ok

And then go to that Window again (as per picture above) and create a fresh Restore Point.. I mean, click on Create..
