well, well. An added benefit to installing Linux was it
discovered the Windows backup directory that Windows couldn't, so yes,
I have restored my computer to its original state and am presently
restoring old files. But wait! So pleased am I with Linux

re-install Linux Mint and use a virtual Windows window. Here's the
sorry ass'd part -- my backup files were created by, you guessed it,
Advanced System Care. My first action this morning was to install
Avast to save me from any ASC incursions.
