Maybe the shortcut won't show, but never should it delete an installed program or your files.
You get to search for files that are a few days old and decide.
I have a problem with my computer. I am running window xp(home) on my computer. When i was surfing the net the other day, i accidently download and installed something. i couldn't remember what it was, but after i installed, it slow down my computer alot. Therefore, i restored my computer to an earlier time( a time before i installed that software). However on the next day, when my sister turned on the computer, she said that we have lost 30gb in our hard drive. She said that before i use the computer, it was 110gb and after i used it, it came down to 80gb available. Do you know why? I ran adware and defrag the computer, but it doesn't seem to help.
