Everyday Malware is continuing to evolve to be more deviant and cause damage your system. Before making any changes to your computer, it’s always a good idea to create a restore point in case the changes break another app or make Windows unstable. Let’s take a look at making Microsoft Security Essentials create Restore Point before removing any infections.
Open MSE and click on the Settings tab, then Advanced on the left side. Now place a check in the box next to Create a system restore point and click on Save Changes. Now a Restore Point will automatically be created before MSE cleans any infection it finds on your computer.
This is helpful in case MSE were to remove a false positive or a difficult virus needs removed in a specific sequence to not make your computer unstable.
