I don't think there is a way to delete one rstore point, however if you
disable system restore, that should delete all the restore points. Only
other thing i can think of  is to restore to a point before you got the
virus, but not sure if that would work. The WinXP box we have at work has
System Restore disabled so i can't test to see if that would work


 Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own
 understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct 
 your paths. -- Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)		      		 
 I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have 
 looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.
 --President Ronald Reagan
