Quietman7 and RickCP have suggested I join this forum and post my issue here. I have an XP professional workstation that has most of my file extensions changed to ECC. This was done late February last year. I have shutdown the computer and have not used since. I have a great deal of history and important files that I would like to recover. I understand this site has a solution and can walk me through the process. I am not a computer expert but I am not a novice either. I am somewhat gun shy at this moment as it is hard to know who to trust anymore.


I appreciate any and all help you might be able to assist me with.
