Last night I had system shutdown while surfing another gun board and listening to Youtube.

My computer stopped responding completely and norton go back restarted my computer from the beginning, noting that an error had occurred on my hard disk. Norton said to uninstall Go Back due a corrupt file in the .BIN and run Scan Disk to fix the problem then reinstall NGB. I did all of this and had to restart the computer 5 times to get everything reloaded. The last time this happened was in May but I lost my OS instead of a partitioned part of a drive. NGB had made mirror of my OS and saved it for future use which has saved me from throwing the tower threw the window.

So this morning I try to log into this site and the other sites, email and what not and my PW are non retrievable at some places, all cookies are gone, internet files and folders just a whole slue of stuff is missing. Mozilla has some of the pw still saved but its like the rest are missing which is impossible, since the only feature that mozilla has is to erase all data not just some of it.

Figure this, I'd rather not read about it on the board when someone gets stuck with a $24000 phone bill, knowing I had it emailed to me. Still have to sleep at night:cool:
