Everyone please take the time to read this article

That has happened to me. and I did almost everything it said to do, 1st thing is to make a image and save it somewhere (In case of anything you try fails and really messes up.)

There are some programs out there that will let you uninstall software and sometimes it will find those for you.

Most time, you will have to "Reinstall: windows if your system really crashes. If that does work, back up your stuff so you don't lose it then do a full install of windows (wipe out everything) this is to make sure your system is healthy again.

This is exactly why

This is exactly why I have a Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS).

The UPS is big enough to give me almost 1/2 hour of computer time. They are not cheap (for a good one), but it's well worth it.

It's even possible that a hard drive could be corrupted from a power outage - even though you are not using it and it is powered on. Lots of background operations are happening ALL the time and if the PC is writing to the disk when it happens - you could be using a lot of profanity when the power returns!

Use a disk clone tool

This is why I like a disk clone tool for disaster recovery and not just a backup. Something like Norton Ghost will allow you to go right back to every bit and byte on the drive.

Uninterruptable Power Supply

I have two UPS - One for my computer, monitor, router etc and another for my TV & home theater system.

I live in a wooded area and get on average 10-18 electric glitches per month and the UPS kicks in immediately & protects the electronics.

If you got expensive toys & want to be safe I highly recommend using a UPS smile

Only a problem if

you don't have UPS, backup, and/or clone copy.

backup image

I took backup of system image as soon as I have Windows installed/setup done initially. Then, I take periodical system backup after applying system update/security patches. Whenever I found ad-ware, spy-ware sneaking into my system, I restore to my last backup which takes about about 20 minutes.

image

I back mine up at least once a month on a hot swap drive with acronis. I have a total of three hard drives in my computer and one gigabyte hot swap drive that has saved my butt several times from ms updates and up grades that went bad !

People that DON'T backup

People that DON'T backup their computers get what they deserve. Then they will complain to anyone who will listen "that they lost everything.....".

I never get lost, but I do explore new territory every now and then.

I do not backup system

I know...
I only back up my data. I do this on a USB external hard drive once a week. I know I should back up the entire thing but I tried once and didn't, can't remember why but I didn't.

I have my desktop computer and TV and associated things protected with a good quality UPS and it comes into play about every month or two. Protects against brown outs or power surges also.

the ups is pure sinewave. Many of the cheaper ones (the ones that are say $200 at staples) will not work. This kind of plays into a $80 battery charger and a $500 one that people use to keep their car powered up for coding. Many insist the $80 is good enough, until their car is bricked as a result of losing power...

kind of sinister

salesmen peddling whole life insurance kind of use that cynical mentality as well

Thanks for this. UPS and

Thanks for this. UPS and periodic disc imaging has always save my butt in the past.
