Thanks in advance for help on this.

 

THe other day I was using my computer and went to lunch and came back to it an hour later and when I came back it had restarted on me.  There was a message that said the computer shut down improperly so I clicked on Start Windows Normally.  The computer started up normally. I was downloading music from Legal Sounds before I went to lunch.

 

When my computer came back on, everything was gone.  My desktop was clean and black background, software gone, pictures and documents gone and task bar and start up menu gone as well.  Also, system tools, such as system restore were gone as well.

 

Did a virus hide all of my files, or were they deleted some how? 

 

It appears they are deleted, however my C:/ Drive says that 230gb out of 280 gb are free, meaning 50gb of space are taken up by files. This is approx how much space I had used previously.  I would assume that if everything was deleted my c: drive would have 280/280 gb free.

 

Were my files deleted or hidden somewhere?  And how do I restore?  I ran unhide.exe from here however it didn't restore my files.

Thank you!

Since You are already getting help at this site, http://www.smartestcomputing.us.com/index.php?app=uportal

I am closing this post. I am doing this because getting help at more than one site causes problems.

 

The Problem You have is best fixed by following directions from only one person. Following directions from several people can actually delay solving the problem.

 

Good Luck with Your problem
