Remove System Restore
System Restore is a program that is used to cheat the money of people by showing error message in the computer hard drive, memory and system. System Restore adds a registry entries to make itself to start automatically when Windows boot. After that, System Restore will do fake scan on the computer and then issue fake warning by showing pop ups to tell the the user that the hard drive, memory and system have serious errors which can only be solved by using the full version of System Restore. Thus, the user is urged to purchase it. Do not believe any report given by System Restore even the warning look so real. In fact, System Restore cannot detect and remove any error of computer.

System Restore can be uninstalled by by stopping all processes with random name and also kill its files. Then, all registry entries added and modified by System Restore must be cleared by using Windows Registry Editor.

System Restore provide fake features such as Computer status, RAM Memory Status, System Drive and System Registry Status. None of them can really protect computer from any kind of malware.

System Restore should be removed immediately!
