Aye that is the windows restore system.. This takes a snapshot of your system in case anything goes wrong so that you can go back to the time before the problem.. However, windows does not care what it backs up so it may well also back up the malware that has been deleted

This article describes how to use the System Restore tool to return your computer to a previous state. System Restore takes "snapshots" of critical system files and some program files and registry settings and stores this information as restore points. If your computer is not functioning correctly, you can use these restore points to return Windows to a previous state when your computer was functioning correctly. It can also change scripts, batch files, and other kinds of executable files on your computer.

This article is for a beginning to intermediate computer user.

Note System Restore does not affect personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos. You can only restore files that you have deleted if you have made backups of those files

Thanks Essexboy!

Now all steps are done. I read somewhere that if you run two virus programs simultaneously they might stop each other. Is it ok to run McAfee and Malwarebytes at the same time?

Next time I have money on my paypal account I will donate a buck or two. :)

McAffe and Malwarebytes are in effect two different animals so they work together quite nicely. MBAM checks for Malware and McAfee for viruses, thereby covering all bases
