I stand to be corrected if this is the wrong forum for this query. When running an on line scan such as "Housecall" to check for a virus on OS Windows Me, is it advisable to disable System Restore. I feel the machine in question is infected. I would like to restore to an earlier date, as I don't know if there may be additional issues. But, I feel the first order of business would be to address the potential virus. If I disable System Restore, doesn't that remove the previous restore points? Thanks for any help offered.
