Hey leistd1,

   With this particular threat, you'll need to start by disabling System Restore. This one definitely gets into those restore points and uses them to reinfect your computer.

  1. Click the Start button, then click Control Panel.
  2. Double-click System and select the System Restore tab.
  3. Check the box beside Turn off System Restore.
  4. Click OK and restart your computer.

After these steps are done, follow the instructions in the required reading document Ex_Brit suggested. Please let me know your status after going through the steps in the document.
