Hello comodo and members-
On my Gateway 4400DS running -
Vista Home premium
Comodo Time mach. as a fallback
heres what was attacked and in what order it happened
to the best of my knowledge:
on a reboot CTM came up with a
“Reindexing the data” ticker (10% done- 20% done etc)
then when at 100% i got a error box stating that there
“is not sufficient room on drive” to accept this.
then up came the F8 login screen -safe mode, command prompt -start windows normally etc
I chose start win normally. then when fully booted, CTM was popped up running with a error
window stating that “restore point could not be restored due to insufficient room on drive”
i have 300+ GB free on my drive-
then upon clicking the top right X on the error window- i always avoid clicking “OK” if my systems
in a altered state as this obviously was-- viewing now at my CTM snapshots pane there was/is a new snapshot(restore point) titled something foreign, i dont recall what it was titled but it wasnt anything i made.
then my Avast went south via its auto updating with a “insufficient space to accept update” error.
then i got a couple error screens about “windows installer service not installed” followed by a
“disable/enable access control” error
i made my move to go into Windows restore, which showed over a dozen restore points- i chose one
back dated about 2 weeks earlier, clicked thru the restore process which ended in a error box stating
“system restore failed to rollback system to selected restore point–pls select a alternate blah blah blah”
then you can guess this one when i clicked the “back” button to reselect a different restore point
they were freeking gone…all of them.
this all happened in a matter of 1 reboot maybe 4 minutes tops.
can any of you seasoned members give me any advice on this…-? including if i gravely errored
by NOT turning off my windows restore when i installed CTM-??
