I recently did a system restore to a couple of days back. Annoyingly, Undong ghe Restore did not fix the problems
(1) I have lost 75% of my Uninstall listing in Control Panel
(2) I had some trial versions of software that have suddenly "expired"
(3) Programmes that were installed well and truly before the point I restored to now keep trying to reinstall themselves when I want to run them
_ironically, a couple of them are among the few that still show in my Uninstall listing in control panel.
Is this a known problem?
Is there any way to fix it, either from happening next time, or to recover what I have lost?
I do have a Firewall and AV running. Should I have turned them off before making ghe uninstall? I also have a spyware checker, which sists resident, and watched for Registry changes. However, I "allowed" them all. Everything _seemed_ to work.
Any help appreciated.
