Another computer problem with a Microsoft Windows operating system. This time a Microsoft Windows 10 update deleted a software program from an individual’s computer. The original initial question is quoted verbatim below.
While using Phoenix360. I got a screen msg about an update. I clicked to get. I started then stopped half way through. It cleared my System Mechanic from me computer. I need to get a download to get back. How?
Phoenix 360 is a computer optimizer software package. It is basically now known as System Mechanic Ultimate Defense. It includes malware, spyware, virus, etc. tools. What fixed this quagmire was performing a Microsoft Windows 10 system restore.
Click the Windows 10 start menu icon in lower left corner. Select “Search” and type in “System Restore”. Click on “Create a restore point”.
A “System properties” window will open up. You should be in the “System protection” tab of that window. Click on “System Restore”.
Another “System Restore” window will open up. Click on “Next”. In the next window you will be able to select your restore point.
Also, you can place a check box in the “Show more restore points”. What you want to choose here is a date and time before you were having your current problem. Choose a restore point back to before you were having your current computer problem(s).
Now you click “Next”. In order to begin system restore, you select “Finish”. Your computer will have to reboot in order to restore it back to the restore point that you picked.
Performing a Microsoft Windows 10 system restore restored the Phoenix 360 software also known as System Mechanic. Finally, in closing here are some tips when performing a system restore. Never ever interrupt a system restore.
Once you click on “Finish” just leave your computer alone and be patient. Interrupting a system restore can and will have catastrophic results. Your Microsoft Windows 10 computer may not boot properly or at all. Microsoft Windows 10 system restore may not run or fail.
Often times Microsoft Windows 10 system restore will revert itself. My experiences with system restore, is that it is a pretty reliable program. It does not always work, but as long as you let it perform it’s task it will either restore Windows back to the date you specified or it will not restore.
