    I have a simple question, and anyone running ewido can help me.

    Ewido deleted some of my system files, I had no idea what was going on because I can't see any of the buttons. Ok, I see buttons, but no words are written upon such buttons. Yeah, weirddd.

    Ok, I can see the deleted files in what I think is the quarantine place, how do I get the ones I want restored? Do I click them and click the middle button (at the bottom, there are three buttons)?
    I know the one on the left refreshes, now, what does the one in the middle and on the right do? How do I bring these files back? Oh lordy.

    The button in the middle is the right one... In the dialog that appears you need to press the left one... May I ask which system files got deleted? Most malware hides inside the Windows or system32 directory... The text on the buttons is missing because your Verdana font is corrupted/not correctly installed. Reinstalling/reregistering the font fixes the problem :)

    Wow Peter, compliments!:)

    I noticed that you are very fast with answering questions in the Ewido Support Forum.:cool:

    Lot of companies are only interested in selling their software, and don't know that support is a very important issue to keep their customers satisfied and loyal!;)

    Maybe, you can try system restore... :rolleyes: to bring back back where you came from before it was deleted. :)

    You can also install ERUNT(free), and it makes daily back-ups to restore everything if something went wrong in your pc.

    Hi Peep,

    maybe a bit off-topic

    Based on you cookies one can see that you run your computer (day to day) as administrator. With a security point of view it would be wise to rename your Administrator into something else.

    What I do is Renamed "Administrator" into Something Else and then
    renamed the disabled Guest account into Adminstrator.

    Then I setup an Audit Policy to log all the (failed) Login Attemps on the 'into Adiminstrator renamed Guest account". Big surprise when I checked the logs and realised that several hundreds attempts were made to login remotely via the renamed Guest but named Administrator account.

    Renaming the guest account to Administrator seems like a good idea, but when I activated my guest account and tried to change settings for that user the only thing available was to change the icon. I disabled it again. Is this not available in the Windows XP Home editition?

    Yeah, I'm going to be reformatting soon, and that was one thing I plan on doing.
