Won't do much good, Worms are stored in system restores... In fact, system restore should be disable before running the anti-virus' - turn it back on after everything I mention below, and as a note, yes when you shut off restore you will lose all your restore points.
Did you purchase your PC/Laptop with vista on it?
If so, you have two more things to ask yourself
Is there a second partition called recovery, if so , Look through your startmenu or sometimes a dashboard and restore to factory settings.
if there isn't a second partition, answer this question, did you receive a blank cd that says backup your computer now, and you said "oh i'll get to it later"?
Worms almost NEVER modify or infect existing files on your computer, they usually are self contained,
Worms are harder to remove for reasons like, attached to running process, or connected to vital registry information, etc.
Easily remove most harmful (notable worms) safely with Avast Virus cleaner or Kapersky, in either case , it isnt as bad as most belief, it's more knowing how to handle it, use one of those programs first, after that , (to remove any existing files) Download superAntiSpyware (not virus, that's malaware, antispyware) Run it... Remove any and all virsus.
After that, boot in safe mode, run both (if possible)
All should be fine, Feel free to PM me with any questions
Can't do wat you said.
When I login into the computer the message saying your computer has been infected by a worm comes up the the Windows Explorer stops working and I can't do anything.
