So my disk drive D has only 1 gb left of free space so I ran a disk cleanup and gave me the usual options.  It also gave me the option to remove some of the microsoft installation stuff.  It said it was safe to remove as long as I have access to the original disk.  I might look for it later but is it really that important?

Vitally important.

 

If you do not have the Istallation disc.....Dont touch it.

 

Your D drive is probably a "recovery partition".....correct ?

It contains a few C disk backups but mostly just other files, games and videos.

Do yourself a favor........Find the Disc.

 

have you ever heard of Murphy's Law ?....Anything that can go wrong will go wrong ...{HERE}

 

Imagine the heart stopping devastation you would feel if completely out of the blue your beloved PC decided to crash...taking part of the OS with it.....and you NEED a GOOD backup...preferably a mirror image of the system....or better still the DISC !!!!...((otherwise your current topic of http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/536434/malwarebytes-vanishes-of-my-system/#entry3385088

just becomes one big ?, and you dont have a viable PC even run Malwarebytes on ))

 

.......and your backups are gone......and you cannot find the disc....(maybe the dog chewed it and spat the contents out in the street somewhere)....

 

1.Put a backup system in place

 

2.Find the Disc...(treat it like Gold...because it is )

I wont worry much about the OS disk since I might upgrade to windows 7 or 8 in a few weeks.  Anyway I have an old backup (about 2 years old) saved on an EHD.  Important docs and pictures are saved on every laptop and tablet in my house so no worry about that unless someone breaks in and steals it physically.  The old installation disc is most probably tucked away in a dusty corner of my bedroom I'll probably check later.  But, I'm still curious why MBAM just vanished like MH 370.
