100% RAM usage equals instant power-down?


System Restore got disabled? Hope it is not a pesky trojan/virus/worm/cryptolocker.

It can also be due to your wonky HDD…


I didn’t put it in, but I only had System Restore active for the boot partition and the program partition and skipped the data partitions. I set it up that way to get a little bit of a performance boost of not having the swap file on the same partition as where the programs were installed. I think I was trying to extend the lifespan of the SSD that has the boot partition. I’m not going to bother with splitting it up next time.

As to whether any malware got in and that’s what disabled System Restore on the boot and program partitions, if it did, it’s been laying low for about 2 or 3 years now. No wonkiness I can detect other than the typical Windows weirdness. Nothing in Task Manager I can’t identify, etc.
