    I'm hoping someone who uses Steady State can answer this. If I turn on hard disk protection, then do a virus scan and remove a virus, does steady state restore the virus after a restart? If I update Java......same question, does it undo the update?

    Depends on where the virus resides but in general, yes, when on and rebooted, it restores a system's non-data files and registry to the condition just prior to when SteadyState (SS) was activated. By running SS just prior to reboot you have two additional option besides complete restore and that is to retain changes temporarily over a reboot sequence and also to retain changes permanently. The later option would give you the chasnce to save system changes with SS actively protecting the disk.

    Ideally of course when it comes to viruses you want to install and use SS on a clean system so it never gets the chance to get infected beyond a simple reboot.
