System Restore cleaning.

With System Restore you can return to a previous "state" of the computer where it was working.
After removing malware, it is best to remove all existing system restore points.
The reason is that malware can also make use of these restore points.

 

Just to clarify:

System Restore sets only the settings of your system back to a previous state.
It changes nothing in case of an infection, that remains present.
