I have way too many thoughts to post. Several small suggestions, tell a bit more about the "route" this pic may have taken.
Did you have it saved in "my pictures"?
Send it to the recycle bin?
Was it an attachment via email?
How long ago did you lose it and etc....
Then I could maybe throw out a few suggestions 4 ya.
Did you try a "search" for it? etc etc etc
If you go to My Pictures folder this is where MS 7.0 stores "saved" type photos.
And once there click the toolbar and the "undo last move" "undo last delete" may help you? Maybe a System Restore to date of loseing it. move it to my documents or send it to yourself via e-mail then undo the Restore should you happen to find it. lol
Good luck!

It was a picture i thought was unneeded, it was viewed quite awhile ago on Picture It and Paint, but now it is critical i get it back. It was saved ot my hard drive for a little while, but most of the time it was on a floppy disk.

Try looking for it at the folder named "Recent" at Documents and Settings. There may be seveal folders with that name. Try Start>Search for all files and folders and enter 'Recent' or better still, enter the file name of that photo...
