Hello, this post is unusual in that I used Combofix to tackle a non virus/malware related issue.After downloading and installing Nokia Suite on my Windows 7 64bit machine from
I kept on having windows explorer opening to "My Computer" at every reboot. Extensively Googling and looking at solns, I finally came upon a post where the writer said that he had run Combofix on his computer and though he did not understand how or why the problem dissapeared.
I did the same keeping the page from
open on another computer while running it on the affected one.
The problem was solved in that, the Windows Explorer opening on startup stopped. Everything else seemed to be working fine, so I went thru with the uninstall process.
File attached, log file.
Only much later I noticed that all my restore points created in the last 2 days at least 20 or so had all dissappeared , and the first one showing was the one combofix made just before installing.
The settings for Creating Restore Points was not in error, I had assigned about 10% of my new 1Tb hard disk for this. All other settings were ok. Just in case you are wonddering why I was creating so many restore points..... I was setting up a new Lenovo Z580 1Tb, 8gGb memory, 2Gb graphics machine. With every program installation before and after i would create a restore point in case the installation created a problem and would not go away after uninstall. The last program I installed was tha Nokia Suite as I knew it was giving the issue mentioned above. After that I only ran Combofix.
As the machine is running fine, I perhaps dont need the resore points lost, but I though you should know of Combofix's behavoiur nevertheless !!! Any idea how I could find and re-enstate the missing restore points
