Windows 7: System Restore works only intermittently

If System Restore does not work correctly from Windows, run it from the booted Windows 7 DVD or Repair CD.

Try changing to MS Security Essentials or Avast5 free editions with Windows 7 Firewall which avoid many of these kinds of problems.

Make sure your Computer>Properties>System Protection is always turned on for the OS drive (only). Hit Configure button to apportion more disk space so points last longer.

I would still install, update and run the Malwarebytes Full scan to get the definitive answer on infection - don't you want to know>?
