Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
As long as all important document are saved and all important programs are re-install-able then no system restore should not do any harm. BUT! I would still recommend backing up the files on either a USB flash drive OR CD Roms you should back up your files every couple or months anyway give or take a month depending on how much and what you use the computer for.

Yes, everything will be lost when you use system recovery, but if you can do backup you files in your computer, you can do system recovery., So if you cannot back up your files maybe i suggest you to scan your computer online. www.precisesecurity.com/antivirus/online-scan.htm
and then uninstall all the unwanted programs, after scanning you should install antivirus, i recommend AVG, free edition, (search in google)downloadable. if you connected to the computer.
but if you has been backup you can proceed to system recovery using the CD installation disk.
may this help, melnavz

everything and set your computer back to when you first purchased it.
get to System Recovery click Start/Programs/Accessories/System
Tools/System Restore. Select a date and time (Restore Point) before you
go the virus.
You could also try downloading and installing MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED
RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it
finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your
