Just had the weirdest thing happen. I booted my computer up as usual, only this time, I got some kind of MASCUI error and a few corrupt file alerts. Instinctively, I clicked on my start menu to go to System Restore, only...NOTHING WAS THERE! The program menu was empty, and nothing was in the start menu either. I double-clicked on my computer, and acrobat reader kept trying to update itself. Needless to say, I was panicking. So I reboot and try to go into safe mode...I couldn't...even...do...that!
I had a game disc in my DVD drive (NFS: Most Wanted, if you must know), I took that out, computer restarted itself and then all is normal. I have NEVER seen anything like this (and hope to God I never do again). Right after normal startup, I immediately got a MS security update. I'm theorizing one of two things...either someone took advantage of that computer insecurity or it really didn't like the taste of my game CD in its drive.
I'm guessing it's the latter, although I've often had a game disc in there and of course, the boot-up would just skip the CD once it knew what it was.
Any theories out there?
