Been working on my daughters PC for a week. She has left the AVG go unoticed and for 47 days it hasn't had a cleen scan. Crap everywhere, Vitrumode, toolbar hackers,some bullshit volume control cra leaving open ports, etc. The same shit everyday.

Good News, I think I got it all done......... took awhile to do since I had to go and delete a lot of the shit. Seems to be working right so far.

My question is , should I do a System Restore before I reboot, as a precautionary move since the last scan ? AVG, Spybot, Adaware, all Windows Dectetor, Windows Live One Care all came back clean .

Anyone ?

If everything's coming up clean, then I wouldn't worry about doing a system restore. You'd have to run all of your scanners over again if you did a system restore now. I usually do it first or not at all.

A restore question is something you should consider before removing all the old stuff.
