    Helping a friend cleanup her computer. Ad-Aware identifies presence of New.Net in a number of System Restore points.

    Can the System Restore points be flushed out to get rid of the New.Net files in System Restore without corrupting the LSP stacks??

    When originally detected, Ad-Aware identified a registry entry and a folder for New.Net which Ad-Aware cleaned out. Now Ad-Aware only identifies the prescence of New.Net files in System Restore points.

    Friend has Windows Millenium. Her system has been cleaned with CWShredder,Spybot and SpySweeper as well, with the only current entries those for New.Net in System Restore.

    Thanks in advance.

    It isn't worth the trouble to try to clean restore points since they most likely will not work after being altered. So it's best just to eliminate them completely. Turn off SR. Reboot and turn it back on. That will erase all the restore points and their contents.

    And, no, this has no effect on LSP's. Points are just passive storage repositories and don't interact with the system.
