Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
To Effectivelly scan for viruses in your PC, you should turn off the System Restore, for the following two reasons.
1) It may have the backup image and settings for the virus effects on the computer and may get back those after a successful virus removal, and you will again be effected with the same virus.
2) The folder where system restore data is saved is System Volume Information, this folder is no accessible by Antivirus for scanning as they are blocked by the O/s. When you disable the System Restore, you can help your Antivirus to scan on those folders also, where virus can be hidden.
A good virus never comes to the front to infect your computer, it stays in the back and send its ddeployments to infect and harm your computer.
