Well, I got home from work Monday and my computer wouldn't boot windows. Unfortunately enough, I had system restore disabled because it was making excessive amounts of System Volume Information anytime I ran a defrag program. Soo.... I had to return it to factory defaults and start from scratch again.

Funny enough, I got the basics up and going and... managed to break it again. Turns out if I install Avast! antivirus (which I've used for years), my computer absolutely will not boot windows. This time, at least, I had a system restore point (like it mattered this time anyways).

So, long story short, it'll probably be another day or two before I get everything up and running the way I like it and WoW installed again, especially since I'm probably going to sleep until I have to go to work. >_>

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and make a backup of your WoW installation next time. It's portable.

Yes, I had Malwarebytes as well as Avast. Neither of them ever found anything, so idk why I even bothered, but such is life. >_>

I use firefox w/ noscript and adblock and tend not to do anything stupid as far as browsing habits go, so I think I genuinely never got anything.

The only reason I turned off system restore was because after doing some maintenance on my PC a while back it ended up having about 140 GB of system volume information... and only about 120 GB of my actual data. I tried using defraggler to defrag rather than the windows defragmenter and that didn't make any difference as far as SVI went.

I'll probably just have to manually back up my system every now and then. At any rate it's just an inconvenience, I don't store anything terribly important on here so it's just a matter of reinstalling everything. =(

tbh: Cho'Gall and The Zoo are a lesser place without you. You are THE MOST missed person in WoW.
