No, not cured it!. I did two restore points last night, and they were there this morning. then, I did some opening of files, looking at the net etc, and then when closing it all the cptr became busy [hard drive activity] desktop icons flashing on and off, and when I checked the system restore, they were gone.
I think I may have the answer. I am using the Steganos Security Suite and when I open or close the safe my restore point that I had created has dissapeared.I have contacted Steganos and await a reply. Anyone else had this problem????
