I have lost all the past system restore dates and the calendar that shows the dates (or any dates) this all happened last week.
I am operating an HP notebook. Before the following events happened i had my system restore points there. Now i cannot even set a new restore point.
three things i happened;
1. i defragmented my hard drive (C: not D:) I did this 3 times one after another
2. I downloaded WinRAR software to unlock files that were sent to me in RAR format and opened those files, sent some picture files using WinRAR
3. Using MSN messenger - had this weblink come to me and clicked on it.
I think this is a virus or something so how do i remove it??
is this what is responsible for me loosing all my old restore points??
how do I get my system back to normal without loosing any of my files and data??
help me please --
