The easiest way to do this in Windows 7 is to use the instructions at the bottom of the DiskCleanup utility where you can wipe out all your Restore points. The reason for doing this is because Malware likes to hide in the Restore points and the minute you use System Restore, your computer is infected again. Once that is done, you can create a new Restore Point by right-clicking My Computer and selecting Properties. Next, select System Protection and select "create a new Restore point" down at the bottom of the pop-up box.

ComboFix was not installed in the correct place that's why I had to use a special tool to remove it and it didn't create a new Restore Point.

In system restore if I click restore, under 'recommended restore' it says:

Time: 1/29/2013 2:13;40PM
Description: Install: ComboFix Created Restore Point
Current Time Zome: Central Standard Time


So, I think ComboFix DID create a restore point.

Yes, it should be a good, clean restore point.
