RECYCLER Virus - Cleaned, but bugger is in my system restore files

I can clean RECYCLER virus with AVG 8.0/8.5 but the problem is I can see the virus is self replicating in the system restore files.

This question is directed at somebody who knows the answer or is pretty confident...

Can I disable system restore and remove the system restore files, clean the infection in safe mode with AVG and be done with RECYCLER?

Thanks in advance.

Just disable system restore and reboot that will delete all restore points.Leave it disabled and do another scan and see if it gets rid of it.

Yeah I actually did all that while I made this thread was after the first reboot and during the scan... I just contacted Crunch via PM and ensured success that way.

How is business at Ramco man? Things getting slow over here.

V.Soon I will not be an installer though
