I was perusing the internet, specifically baseball statistic sites.
All of a sudden, a box popped up that looked like a Window error message.
It said something like "Your hard drive has failed, reboot now.
I did not reboot.
I immediately performed a System Restore to 3 days ago.

When the computer restarted, I noticed that all of my files were gone from my desktop.
All of my programs and folders are there.
However, all folders are empty and all word/excel files that were on the desktop are gone.

I opened internet explorer and all of my favorites are gone as well.
All of my login names are still there and the saved passwords still work.

I did another system restore to 15 days ago, but the same relults.
I ran CCleaner and everything looks fine.

I would love to be able to get my files, songs, and pictures back.
It would also be convenient to get my internet favorites back.

Any suggestions???
