Restore points reverted to 2008

Hi - I seem to have a bit of a problem: as the title says, my restore points screen has reset itself to Jan 2008. All the later points are still there, but any idea why this should happen? I have rebooted, by the way, a couple of times.

Also, in the start menu, most of my programs are highlighted, which I believe shows them to be new (and they're not).

Finally, I've been trying to log on to the Amazon, 'Manage my Kindle' page, as I have done frequently, and I get a message 'This connection is untrusted'.

All this started after I downloaded Calibre to work in conjunction with the Kindle.

Any suggestions?

Maybe try going back into system restore and resetting it back to its original restore point.
CMOS Battery might need replacing has your computer time and date changed at all.

Time and date are fine. I can't restore it to 2008. The point I used was one created two hours before I downloaded Calibre.

I tried contacting Amazon customer services to tell them about this message, but got the same Untrusted Site warning:

This Connection is Untrusted

Seems a bit odd.













If you usually connect to

I can't download books either.

I've restored to two days ago. I can't now get into Firefox, and Kaspersky says the black list is corrupted and won't update. I've tried a roll back to the last known good database but it says the rollback stuff is missing.

  exdragon 15:25 18 Nov 10

OK, FF is fine, Kaspersky has been repaired, but although I can get into Amazon's Manage my Kindle page using the laptop, I still get the Untrusted message using the desktop.

I've run Malwarebytes, which reports no problems, so any idea for my next move? Apart from figuring out how to stop words on this page being underlined in red, that is!

  birdface 15:40 18 Nov 10

maybe time to give malwarebytes free a run to see if it finds any problems.
Your click here's were open Ok for me.

  birdface 16:02 18 Nov 10

Oops you already tried malwarebytes.

  exdragon 16:10 18 Nov 10

buteman - although I checked the time and date, I obviously saw the date as what I thought it was...and it's not the 1st January, is it??

All sorted apart from the blasted underlinings in red.

Thanks to all.
