Before you do win 7 system restore or XP system restore, run total scan of virus first to find the virus, if there’s no, turn off the program before System Restore. Please note that, when you turn off the anti-virus program, you computer is easy to be infected, so after restore you should enable it again, or you can disconnect internet when resorting.
No Restore Points available. When you run system restore tool with no system restore location in the list, you can fail too.
