Don’t forget about good old system restore!!
You know how many times I have gotten spyware or someone has brought a computer to me with sypware and I start doing my normal scans and what not? Many many times I tell ya.
Always give system restore a shot first. Sometimes I forget about that option. I dunno why, but it has happened.
Yesterday my computer all of a sudden shows me 20 error messages that my c drive is corrupt. For a split second I thought I was screwed then I see this S.M.A.R.T Scan start. Lil punks!
Anyways I started up system restore and it did its’ thing and I was back in business about 30 minutes later. I made sure I updated all my spyware software and ran some scans which found some silly little things, but nothing serious. I still don’t know what kicked that off.
Not much info here, but just a simple reminder to use system restore. It is your friend!
