I always do backups when using CCleaner to "clean" the system registry. This time it had cleaned to much (or I was not awake enough) and Outlook stopped functioning. When I tried to re-register a backup registry file for that day, Kaspersky promptly deleted the file and blocked RegEdit. I scanned RegEdit, all the .reg backup files and even CCleaner. All clean! I then restored the file from Quarantine and scanned it as well. Nothing!
I do not get support with the Free version, so I did all that I could do - I paused protection and registered the backup files anyway. After that I scanned all the Office folders - nothing. I restarted the PC and everything was fine - even Outlook functioned again. (I activated protection again of course)
So I have to ask - is this a bug, a chance occurence or what? Is there anything else I should/could have done? If you need more information (OS or Free versions) just ask.
