To remove this virus you have to install one of the best antivirus application on your computer. Which will help you to remove this virus from your computer. I would like to suggest you to install the Quick heal antivirus application on your computer. And after installing this software application on your computer you have to update the latest virus definition before scanning to your system.

Re: slirsredirect.search.aol.com

System Restore is a feature built into Windows XP and Windows ME that allows users to "roll back" to restore specific items without affecting data files. A restore point is created automatically (if System Restore is enabled) when new software and / or drivers are installed. If there is a problem with the installation of System Restore allows a user to select a restore point (a date) to return to. The problem here is this, if a computer is infected with viruses, spyware and / or advertising that a restore point is created, this material back to the restore point will re-infect the computer.
