Something funny happened with my computer yesterday and I have no idea what it was, but I was able to get past it through using System Restore. My next step was going to be the complete disk backup I have on my external HD which was made using Paragon. Had I needed to use my Paragon backup, I would have been in a double mess because I would have had no idea what to do. I made the boot CD, or whatever you call it. Thing is, I don't think I could have gotten into the BIOS to change the settings to boot from a CD because I was unable to access Safe Mode. The only thing it would automatically take me to was Startup Repair. Through there I got to the System Restore. I scan every day with Malwarebytes Pro and with Avast Internet Security 6; once a week week free SuperAntispyware. I thought maybe I should contact someone and find out what to do for when/if this happens again. I've read and read in the help manual and, of course, I have gained some knowledge. But mostly I found it hard to understand. Can anyone out there lay this out for me in a simple way that's easy to understand? Every time I backup I just do a full backup since I have room on my external. I always verify the archive when I'm done with the backup. I think I made the boot CD from something called Paragon-140-HEE_WindowsInstallSNU_10.0.11..... -- but I wouldn't swear to it.
