    Antivirus Tools Cannot Clean Infected Files in the _Restore Folder

    BLAZIN GUNZ,

    If you have Windows ME follow the instruction at this link

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;en-us;q263455

    Try the 1st or 2nd Method first if you think either one of them will work.

    Once I had the samething happen and had to Manually Purge the Data Store

    But note the Warning. It left me without any Restore points

    WARNING: Using the following steps will completely remove all restore points from the data store. Do not use this method if this will cause problems. When you enable the System Restore feature again, the System Restore feature will create a new restore point and then resume monitoring your computer
