Can't remove "Data Restore" trojan

Recommended Posts

My computer has been infected by the "Data Restore" trojan. I have downloaded the latest Superantispyware updates and have scanned 3 times with no luck. I have been trying to download Malwarebytes but I believe the virus is blocking it. At this point, I am running out of ideas. Thanks.

You need to disable the system restore of windows before you scan the computer. After you scan and you are clean, enable it again.

or just keep system restore disabled, heh, as it's nothing but trouble, to much malware uses it to hide, and too often when you use it, it restores old malware thought to have been removed, or it causes even more errors than the ones you fixed by using it >.<
