    Will System Restore fix a problem if I think a virus is on my computer?


    While using my Internet Explorer, a new tab opened that said "VIRUS ALERT FROM MICROSOFT, This computer is BLOCKED, Your computer's registration key is Blocked" saying my registration key is illegal and my Windows is pirated (not true!). The tab mimics Microsoft Support and give Microsoft Security Tollfree: +1-855-896-8555. The address bar reads "138.197,77.50/code8555/"


    I know this isn't a real site but now my computer is locked up and I can't use it at all. Will System Restore fix this problem?

    :)
