My name is Ryan Conway and I live in Eau Claire, WI. I have many friends who work with programming, but I am a geologist; and notorious for being computer-dumb.
I recently won a long battle against Win 7 security 2012. After countless programs downloads and scans, my computer finally appears to be infection free.
There is one problem however,
Most of files are gone or, I hope, hidden. My wallpapers are all gone and the desktop is black. All the shortcuts I had on my desktop are also gone. If I go into Windows explorer, my user profile is gone as well so I am unable to manually go find and restore anything; which includes about 30 pages of a final paper I have due very soon. My itunes is still there though, but that seems to be about it.
I fixed the virus using Rkill, Malwarebytes, and Fix NCR. Could these have done something?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated,


Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
