Did you use disks or a "System Restore" from Start--> Programs ---> Accessories---> System Tools ---> System Restore?
If you used disks, then all of your hard drive got repartitioned/reformated. This means all the information that was on the hard drive got deleted. Your computer would be "brand" new.
If you use "System Restore" your personal files should be there. From the sound of things, this may look like a Disk Reformat, since all of your person items are gone.
Who said I couldn't have everything?
