I'm working on a friend's computer that was badly infected with a variety of malwares. I'm currently getting help from the malware forum - and won't do anything until that process is done...of course...but here's the thing: most of their jpg's were corrupted in some way by the bad guys (the word and excel files too - but that's another matter). They were all modified on one day at the same time and voila, they can't be opened.
For the jpg's I either get 'no preview available' on 'incorrect jpg header' (well, something like that...I don't remember exactly).
I realize that it is probably a lost cause - but does anyone know of a utility or process that I could go through to recover/repair the images...many family photos are involved...and of course there is no backup
thanks in advance!
EDIT:Moved to more appropriate forum
