Computer was running slow, so I ran an XP recovery. Now, some of my pictures are still on the computer, some that were in files are now inaccessible, and some of the files are now inaccessible. I do have some things still on there. Also, when I ran the recovery, it put my computer back to IE 6 and almost every site tells me to upgrade. Any help in recovering the files/pictures would be appreciated.

System manufacturers are responsible for the recovery mechanisms they install in systems they sell.

System manufacturer and model (example, Dell Inspiron 1506)?

What files are "inaccessible" and how do you know that?

If you are trying to access files which belong to the Documents/Settings group...then you may need to take ownership of said files.

In the HP_Administrator's documents and settings,\MyDocuments, any file that had pictures in it and had a date in the name of the file (such as December 10 2011) is not accessible. At least that is what the message says. But if the file name just has a month and year with no date, there is no problem and I can access the pictures in the file. Also, Combofix, AntiMalewarebytes, and SuperAntispyware programs are now inaccessible. One more thing is happening now. I can't click on anything on my homepage, that is www.comcast.net, without a message saying IE cannot open the page. I cannot upgrade IE either as it says I have an old version and should upgrade. I think I may have a virus.
