hey... nice...

 

i would agree will all those steps except one. System Restore.. disabling it ... mmh. I completely agree virii do get themselves in there and they can stop AV products from cleaning BUT surely for a noob its a service that they could use if they manage to mess up their system.

 

i personally disabled it the first chance i got on the xp machine i have, but thats because i dont care if i dump my system in the drink :lol:

 

anyway.... comment given ;)

I think that you should have a link to Windows Noob Forums

 

And post up some screenshots from longhorn 5048 ;)

 

 

Also add a link to Microsoft Anti-spyware - It's definitely the best by far. B)
