A few days ago I was doing my maintenance and decided to run MBSA. I don't let windows auto-update. Biggest potential security risk I have ever seen. It showed I needed 2 critical updates.
So I go get them the first went ok but on the second when I rebooted, I saw a momentary flash of a window open and saw something run, a flassh of a progress bar installing something. Ok I imediately went to system restore and found it was disabled.
Went to process in admin tools and was unable to change any settings, properties unresponsive. Then the window wouldn't even open anymore.my av was disabled etc. etc.
Anything and everything that had to do with security settings or could be used to stop the ongoing process was unresponsive. Couldn't even get into safe mode.
So finally I had to do a complete system recovery and have been trying to reinstall everything eversince LOL
So no matter how good yer security settings are if you let it in yourself, you are history.
