Hi this is post first post. I have recently been infected by the Windows XP Restore virus, having looked through google, I found the advice to remove this virus [URL Link has been removed by Bobbye[/URL] But my friend urged me to look into your forums for advice before taking any other actions. I just came across "old hickory" post 10mins ago, http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic166248.html And saw the similarities, but not sure if I should wait and follow his footsteps or create my own post. Please guide me through my first steps in tackling this Windows XP Restore virus. Please excuse my lack of knowledge as I am a very light user. Any help is deeply appreciated. Thank you.
