I have reason to believe that, Returnil ( may ) be the culprit in completely wiping ALL the SR points on Vista PC's, at least this one. Not sure about other OS's right now, but i'm sure it didn't happen on XP. Recently i encountered what appeared to be a nasty Malware infection http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=246938 Or it could have been a serious malfunction etc of some kind, either way a full reinstall etc was required to fix it. I tried to first do a SR, but i discovered they had ALL dissapeared ? Today i checked the SR points before i enabled Returnil to try out some software, they were ALL in place. Enabled Returnil, installed the software and experimented with it, and afterwards rebooted. On rebooting i decided to check the SR points, and found they had ALL vanished ! Are you aware of this occurring previously on other peoples PC's ? What are your suggestions to sort this out ?
