Restoring with Norton Ghost due to searchforit

Hi my operating System is xp pro with sp2 installesd. I have Adaware Spybot S&D and spyware blaster installed as well as AVG and zone alarm. I also have C.Cleaner All these programmes are run daily and updated but in spite of this I still have Searchforit on my system. Because of this I intend to restore a ghost image of my system onto my C.Drive. This is a process I have never done before and I would like to know if system restore should be turned off before I do it. Also could someone tell me how I can minimise the risk of Searchforit getting back on my system as I thought I had done everything I could but it still got on and I cant get it off. Hence the restore which also contains sp2. Any advice would be greatly appreciates. Thank you very much in advance

SearchForIt is a false positive. You are finding it when you do a scan with Spybot. What Spybot is picking up is the registry entry of the blocked item in SpywareBlaster. You don't need to do anything, just wait for a future update from Spybot when the matter will almost certainly be resolved.

After running a scan with Spybot don't delete SearchForIt as you will lose the protection against it given by SpywareBlaster.

Be careful with ghost as it will automatically format your drive and could delete any partitions if you do not get the switches right.
