A virus has deleted/hidden a TON of files on my computer! It started by wiping things off every time I re-started and eventually it quit starting up altogether. I got a SystemMechanic CD and that got it running again but there are no files in my libraries and things are still hidden. I'm very anxious about it because there were almost all of the photos of my kids on here and I worry that they are not recoverable! Is there anything I can do?

Oh, the last time I was on my computer before I got it running with SystemMechanic, I downloaded Avast, Malware-byte, and Spybot and did a full clean-up of everything, it was when I was instructed to restart that it wouldn't start up. The photos are still gone although according to those programs the computer is free of any viruses.
