My computer crashed two nights ago, and did a system recovery. I'm running XP Home Edition, all updates have been installed since. Right now AVG Antivirus is running in normal mode.
When I went to open my owner folder (in the documents & settings folder), where my previous settings and My Documents folder was, access was denied. I started in safe mode and changed permissions on the folder, including subfolders which were also locked. Started up the computer normally, and now I can open all my owner folders including My Pictures, but can't get a preview of the pictures. The default picture viewer is Windows Picture and Fax viewer. I have about 6 months of pictures not backup on disk, luckily I have most of those photos on a sharing site.
Is there anyway to view these photos anymore, or did I completely loss these pictures? My antivirus is running as I type away, and I'm in fear of doing anything else to the computer until I know I can save my photos or give up and accept they are gone.
