Mod Edit:  Split from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/530742/after-windows-auto-updated-i-lost-the-path-to-my-desktop/ , moved to Win 8 forum - Hamluis.

 

 

System Restore is very tricky ... if you have some virus you can restore it too with this operation ... Suddenly updates is a smart trick used by malware to install themselvs into computers check carefully if the really come from Microsoft or some hacked - spoofed site ... if you have W 7 you can see all updates history somewhere in Action Center - Windows Updates :warrior:

Gmer ... how do you deterrmine what site the updates came from? (I'm using win8, if it makes much of a difference.)

 

Thanks!

Ah ... I see, this is using an alternate way of downloading updates. I always update via the Control Panel.
