First thank to you all my virus is gone, but now all of my music files are too.
I tried a search and found nothing, also my sytem back up date only goes back to
june. I upgraded to sp2 and installed some virus protection but never deleted my
music. I hope is enough info. Thank you in advance. This site is great.

Hi have you tried a search on your computer by going to start, search, files and folders type in what you are looking for even let it search hidden files and folders.

If that turns up you music then make another folder for it and store it all in their, if nothing turns up then yes you have probably lost them.

Hope this post has helped you. :thumbsup:

Do searches for the types of files your music was, ie, *.wav or *.mp3, etc.

The * is a wildcard which will show you all files that end with the extention, so *.wav will bring up all wavs on the hd.
