We all know how Microsoft is always criticised for their products not working properly, being vulnerable etc.

Those critics are right, many of their features suck but, today I could try one of them and it really surprised me how well it worked.

Well, the case I have Norton Antivirus 2002, but also, I have installed Norton System works but an older version that doesn't work with the current version of my OS.

for that reason I decided to unistall Norton system works, but when I did, Norton antivirus stopped working, the stupid unstitall program deleted a file that Norton antivirus was using.

The message said I had to reinstall Norton antivirus and that sucked because I downloaded it from the Symantec web site and it works connecting to their site and downloading the components, so, I didn't have the installation program and I wasn't sure I would be able to get it.

then I remembered one feature: System restore, it's a feature in Windows ME, 2000 and XP that allows you to restore your system to a previous version if something goes wrong.

Well, I did it, and you know what? it worked
:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I expected it to be able to restore registry keys, but not missing files, and it did, good one Microsoft (for once ;) )
