Hello All, What happens to the files "skipped" in System Restore ? I ask because I got rid of a Trojan by jumping back one day and don't want it
coming back to haunt me. The file it rode in on has also disappeared.
This is on XP Pro and the Trojan was one that gives a phoney MS warning
of a Trojan plus cures for same ! !

Well disable it first reboot then turn it back on. Or remove the trojan with something

Boot into safe mode and run Malware Bytes, its pretty good at getting rid of that virus. And yes, disable and re-enable system restore to get rid of the files it stores.
