run ComboFix to get rid of the spyware, I got rid of it but in the process ComboFix deleted some of my files and placed them in Qoobox.
How can I get those files back?Its really important as I invested lots of time on working with these files, they are .xml type ones.
Also for finding them I used Pandora Recovery, I was able to recover these files with it but they were all 0KB.
Thank you for your time.I have also not found any of this files in C:\QooBox\Quarantine
Pandora recovery shows that the files are located at C:\Qoobox\Test, but there is nothing there.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

I don't know anything about the recovery tool you mention using...but such tools vary in their capacity to recover files.

I would try a few other free tools available for data recovery purposes. I don't/haven't used any of the following but various members have reported success with each during my time here at the forums.

Partition Find and Mount free partition recovery software - http://findandmount.com/

Recovery Software, Partition Table Doctor - http://www.ptdd.com/

Recovery Software, Recover My Files - http://www.recovermyfiles.com/

Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download - http://www.piriform.com/recuva
