Hi Guys
This is my first ever posting so be gentle ;) I've decided to join a forum seeking advice about a couple of things... Firstly a friend of mine installed XP over Windows 98 and deleted 2yrs worth of family photos. (and no he didn't back up ... That's why he was installing XP + DVD writer.Long story.) Anyway, I've spent time over the last week and have recovered about 300 out of 760 photos. So partly there. Any suggestions on retrieving more would restore my faith in PCs (and my neighbour ;) I used Photo Resue Professional.

Secondly, I've got a pesky Adware called Surfsidekick which is proving to be a pain to get rid of. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Kind regards

Welcome to BC!
You are asking really two very different questions, so I suggest you break these up and post each of them in an appropriate forum. I am surprised you could retreive that many photos; he should consider himself lucky.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
