Well aint this just great. Finally decided to buy, and per instructions everywhere ,I deleted the trial version via Control Panel before purchasing and downloading the lastest copy. Well, Control Panel removed Acronis, stated to reboot, and now my computer is dead. It wont boot. Just dead. I left it alone and after 10 minutes I got a blue screen of death, then a reboot, then a prompt to repair windows. Now its at the point where it says it cannot start, and is trying to use a prior System Restore point, which is not owrking and now its in a endless loop I am freaking out and mad as hell, and all that comes to mind is "thanks for nothing" Brand new computer and I finally got the last piece of software installed after 5 days of setting it up. Of all ironies, the REMOVAL of a trial version of backup software did me in. I have data backups, but the only image backups I have, obviously, are from teh trial software, which I just unisntalled to buy the real one. Does this get any more insane?? I'm on my other computer now, and I am livid. Cant believe all that work is lost and will have to be recreated. AAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH Just how unstable is this product Clearly I have lost all confidence that I had in Acronis. I heard of buyer beware but this is nuts!
