    After my experience...yes.It deleted all the snapshots after restoring the baseline snapshot for example.And after that,Windows was preparing my desktop...all my settings,icons,themes,wallpapers were gone.With all due respect to the developer,Toolwiz Time Machine is useless to me.

    Trialling KAV 2015 after having used WSA for the last 2+ years. So far I'm rather impressed with Kaspersky. It's light on resources and has some good features such as 'Vulnerability Scan' and 'Kaspersky Security Network' - handy for right-clicking on new files.

    Have moved on to Emsisoft Anti-Malware. Kaspersky seemed to be having update issues (hanging at 99%). EAM is certainly light on resources, and its scanning engine(s) have been faring very well in tests of late. If I were to change one thing, it would be the interface; I find myself forgetting where certain features are within the sub-menus.

    Good move! I installed EAM on one of PC I'm in charge of. No problems so far since February (EAM + Windows inbuilt FW).

    Then if Avast is on your PC and you have "Hardened Mode" on, disable it.
