C:\system volume information\_restore cleaning help

By tunk
Dec 29, 2009
  1. I am helping a friend get rid of some viruses/malware/adware.

    I am following the 8 step process. I haven't posted the HJT log because MBAM keeps detecting 15 files labeled (ADWARE.MYWEBSEARCH) in
    C:\system volume information\_restore

    I have searched the internet for plausable instructions to do this but I want to hear from my heroes first :)

    Delete all temp files:
    Temp File Cleaner

    Turn off System Restore by going to Control Panel, System, Advanced... Turn it back on. Run the scans once more after a restart
