Disabled System Restore

I am running a HP Compaq dc 5100. On downloading software to speed up my computer it became obvious that it was malware which I got rid of as quick as I could but not before it had disabled the system restore which I can't recover. At the same time on opening up my computer it sticks and windows installer tries to open 'Picture Gallery' and will only boot up if I use task manager to end that task. From then on all is ok.

Installer Clean up may solve one problem

We need to know what op system XP, Vista, or W7, to advise about system restore.
