The day was saved for me by restoring the latest earlier image. I recommend that you do the same. We make images, only to get bailed out of these tricky situations.
Thanks wanchoo yes mate I should have done that and still might because although I haven't seen it rear it's ugly head again maybe it is still lurking somewhere I can't see it.
Thing I find really annoying is that it happened the way it does eh?

Things like this can happen.
Big reason I always keep several system images, and I always make one before installing anything. Even if trusted just in case something may go wrong.

That way, if the worst happens .. a HD wipe and restore will have you up and running just moments before the incident as if it never happened. Sometimes this is just easier than trying to remove whatever it was.

Good habit to get into IMHO, especially if you aren't already.

Well wishmaster we are on the same ~ on that count I have two images and two clones - a bit of overkill I guess but thats OCD for you LOL!!
