HKLM:RunOnce *Restore c:\WINDOWS\system32\restore\rstrui.exe -i

What can this do to my PC I saw it in my msconfig start up menu. My PC keep restoring files upon reboot doin' just like a deep freeze does when reboot. I am trying to figure out what's running my system restore automated at start up. I cannot change anyhting nor delete file because they just keep comin' back on my restart or reboot. I deleted the program in my msconfig but nothing change. My PC is also running normally in windows except that I cannot change anything in my settings. By the way I am using Windows XP. looking foward to anyone out there to help me.
