Then, please do explain how the trojan virus that was attacking my computer disappeared for good after a system restore in safe mode? Magic?

Down vote me because you don't know how to delete your game file manually after uninstalling, that's smart. I had this very same problem when I did a system restore. I got through it just fine.

Uninstall.

Reinstall.

No more QQ.

I had the same problem after doing a system restore. Go to Riot Games/League of Legends/LOL.Game.Version Open it with notepad.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<PackageVersion PatcherVersion="1.0.0.25" >
<Version>59</Version>
<Name>LOL.Game.01_03_2011</Name>
<InProgress>FALSE</InProgress>
</PackageVersion>

Values will be a bit different I think but change it to this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<PackageVersion PatcherVersion="1.0.0.24" >
<Version>58</Version>
<Name>LOL.Game.01_03_2011</Name>
<InProgress>FALSE</InProgress>
</PackageVersion>

I think that is what fixes it. Open the launcher, and it should patch and fix everything.

Edit: There are 3 other files, LOL.AirRuntime.Version, LOL.Air.Version, and LOL.Patcher
If it doesn't work, try doing the same process with these other ones.

I down voted because you obviously don't know why people do a system restore in the first place. I get a virus that my virus scanner can't fix and I system restore to the point before the system registry was changed by the virus.

I'm trolling and helping. The two aren't mutually exclusive.

Yeah this guy is clueless, but it's pathetic because he's posing as an experienced techie that knows what he's talking about. Quite sad

First tell me how you know that its gone? Cause your computer doesn't have a problem? Or are you running multiple programs and they are all telling you its gone. If so if it doesnt include at least a couple of these listed programs then i have no reason to continue arguing:
combofix
malware-bytes
spyware doctor
superantispyware
