Web Dude or anyone else,

I use windows XP and last night when I went to click on my user icon to load my personal settings I found that my profile had been resotred to factory settings. The background I use was gone along with all of my documents. Although Adobe Creative suite which was installed remained there with the exception of Photoshop I belive.

I do graphic design work and just was finishing up a book of old family photos that had been scanned in and made into a scrap book of sorts depicting 4 generations of my family. This was the only peice that was not backed up on a CD.

I am wondering what happened, my wifes profile on the same computer is fine. WHen I looged on to see factory setting were used NOrton Antivirus was up saying my virus protection had been turned off, not sure if that is part of the problem or if that is just a result of everything going back to factory standards.

Is there any way to recover these lost documents? Lost many hours of work with that single book. It was supposed to go to the printer today sctually.

Any help would be grand.

nofishfisherman, sorry to hear of your troubles, more than likely your pictures are okay and will be retrievable.

Have you tried a system Restore??? "restoring the computer to a previous date when things were working correctly"

There are some good Data recovery tools/programs available, I'll see what I can dig up for you if the restore does not work.

Thanks for the replies guys.
I actually postd the same question on that "other site" and they got me fixed. Most of the files I needed where actually found in another folder about 5-6 layers deep on my hard drive.
So all is right in the world again.

Looks like the "other site" isn't good for something still.

Hey nofishfisherman,

Sorry I missed your post. I could have helped you! I was so busy yesterday that my head is still spinning. I installed a new virus protection softeware and had to update over 50 PCs to talk to the mothership... Oh well. Glad someone got you fixed up.

Your documents never disappear, even though you dropped your profile and there are no links on your desktop anymore. All your docs and setting are still in the C:\Documents and Settings\username\ directory. I would be wondering why your profile got trashed. That is kind of unusual.

Anyway... glad you're fixed up.
