5.After your operating system is considered 'clean' flush your System
Restore cache.

Do this:
Click Start==>Run... then type (or copy/paste) "sysdm.cpl" (w/out quotation
marks) into the box, then click the 'OK' button.

In the 'System Properties' panel click on 'System Restore' tab and [check]
the box beside 'Turn off System Restore on all drives'.

Click 'Apply' (under 'Available drives:' wait until the 'Status' has
changed) then click 'OK'.

Reboot.

Click Start==>Run... then type (or copy/paste) "sysdm.cpl" (w/out quotation
marks) into the box, then click the 'OK' button.

In the 'System Properties' panel click on 'System Restore' tab and
[uncheck] the box 'Turn off System Restore on all drives'.

Click the 'Apply' button.

Note: ensure that under 'Available drives' the Status of Drive does show
'Monitoring' (this may take while).

Then click the 'OK' button.

Now, manually create a restore point:

a) Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System
Tools, and then click System Restore.
 
b) On the Welcome page, activate the radio button besides 'Create a restore
point', click the 'Next >' button.
 
c) On the Create a Restore Point page, enter a descriptive name for your
restore point, e.g. 'After Flushing System Restore Cache' and then click
the 'Create' button.

Reboot.

Done!

==============================================================================

Not required

When you turn system restore back on a new restore point is automatically
made. Once the new restore point is made you will see in the status section
that system restore is monitoring the partition; which means it is enabled,
that's why you have to wait - it's making a new restore point.

The only value to manually making a new restore point of your own is, you
can give it a name that is easy recognized if you need to maybe again go
back to that point in time [if it is available], as you know your computer
was clean at that time.
