Sorry I forgot. I don't know what all info you may need. I have a Compaq PC that is about 4 years old running Windows XP.
I downloaded a virus yesterday and after unsuccessfully trying to remove it manually and through system restore, I preformed a system recovery. While going through the recovery screen, much of the wait time was spent "copying files". After recovery, the system seems to be reset to all of its defaults (which is fine) but all of my music and pictures are missing. However, a few programs I had previously installed such as Google Earth are still available. Question is, were my media files copied to a folder somewhere that needs to be unzipped or something or are they lost for good?
