Strange behaviour after 'system restore'?
Last night I tried to install a Samsung pc suite for my mobile phone and the process didn't want to play, full of errors etc so decided to delete from my pc. However, there were several left over bits that would not delete from the control panel 'programmes and features'. The only alternative was for me to do a system restore and so I disabled 'tamper protection' in my NIS 2011 (latest v.) and restored to about 4 hours earlier to the flawed install of the mobile phone suite. The process stated it had been restored ok and was rebooted.
Now, NIS showed a purple coloured arrow in the taskbar disc and the suite stated that Live update was unavailable and that a fix was in progress. After a while nothing seemed to be happening and so I did a manual reboot and this time I managed to run a live update and it downloaded about 97 meg. All is ticked green and running as it should.
My question is this, as I only restored to about 4 hours earlier should it have lost all the virus def's and all the other bits that go with these? I could understand if I say restored to 3-4 weeks ago, but I thought this a little strange in the circumstances.
If anyone out there has any thoughts on this I would like to hear what you think.
My specs are, Windows 7 Home prem 64 bit, 3 Gig Ram, 340 Gig hard disc.
