Annoyed to say the least as I have only just replaced my hard drive and re-installed Win 10 and all my software.
The next time you "re-install Win 10 and all my software" - or now, if everything's working perfectly - it would be a good idea to make an image of the system with Acronis True Image. Then, when something like that - or worse - happens again, instead of having to waste hours messing about, Acronis will restore your system, software, data and everything else exactly as it was before in just few minutes.
It's saved me countless times and I haven't had to reinstall programs or OS for more than a decade. It gives you great peace of mind to know that whatever virus or software problem you may encounter, your computer will be effortlessly restored to a pristine state in two or three minutes. ATI has never once failed me.
It makes system images automatically at any interval you decide and allows you to verify their integrity.
