    Yesterday suddenly I could not log in to my WIN 8.1 System. PW was ok but the desktop did not load. Instead I was thrown back to the start screen.

    Started in safe mode, did some checks (no problems found) and saved newer things. Starting normal again seems to work, the desktop appeared but nothing really worked. Thank's god I had a system backup from March.

    So: Do a backup, guys!

    I tremble every day.

    The System Restore feature does not work since about a year.
    I have 2Tb free on an external disk drive and I still have not "started" the backup.

    I am a genius :p

    Many lives ago, I was able to understand something by reading the Windows registries.

    Now, they have become more complicated or ... I have become illiterate :D

    Last week my laptop had problem with Windows update and AVG Antivirus. I used System Restore of Windows to turn it back and now it works fine. You may try it.

    I used to install AVG for a while as free solution for family/customers but ditched it because of those problems.

    I'm using Avast for a few years and never had those problems with it (so far ;) )

    They even made it free for businesses a few weeks ago.

    I will try. I have AVG but I do not like it so much.

    Thank you

    I installed Avira Pro yesterday.

    When trying on the side to go B4x, said the site contains malware and is locked.:mad:
    Then I uninstalled it and installed Avira Free.

    Now everything is OK.;)

    I have some free license keys of AVG Internet Security 2015 (expire on 2018). If anyone want one, just PM me :D
