for everybody if needed: all your files aint deleted but renamed and moved to certain location on your computer. so do not panic

you might try to rename them manualy or by using some software/batch file and move them back to their places or wait for combofix developer(s) to post a solution but I DO NOT RECOMMEND taking any actions if you aint 100% sure you know what are you doing. for sure they will give a solution soon =) cheers
