I think I caught something on my computer but the main thing that happened to me today is that after i restarted the computer before it loaded the desktop a pop-up came up that said it couldn't find the local profile and had to use a guest one or something like that. When the desktop loaded it was like it got restored to a previsous pooint and all my pictures nd music were gone. My question is are these gone for good or is there a way to recover them?

okay update on this....
i was able to get access to my my documents folder by going to C:\Documents and Settings\.

now my problem is first off that i still can not log on to my original windows profiles with all my docs and settings.

my second problem is that i have some type of spyware, adware, virus, or some other type of thing that i don't know about on here.

a few of the problems is that in the add/remove programs there are files in there simply called random things, like copy, webreg, docpro, hpmdtab, instantshare, qfolder, and a couple others ones but when you click on them all it says is that they are used rarely and theres no option to uninstall or nothing.

another problem is that there is this thing on the left side of the screen that gives access to your my documents, your shared folders, network places, and a couple other things. it is a bout a couple inches thick and stretches vertically across the screen. the format of it matches perfectly with how windows looks too.

the other other things i see is that i get some pop-ups to random sites and in the bottom right hand corner where it usually shows your internet connection that is not there anymore and it has always been there in the past.

thank you in advance to anyone that can provide some help.

Backup your files (and be aware that they may be infected).
I'll move this over to the Am I Infected forum....
