I accidentally downloaded a virus, last time this happened I was able to reboot in Safe Mode (F8 at start up) and fix the problem. However, I forgot how to do it (I was supposed to press F8). I accidentally ended up starting the system restore process with no way to stop it. Now all my pictures and music files are gone.
After reading threads on other forums I found that the files were not gone, and that I can undo the system restore. I followed the instructions but I could not find the option they told me to choose "Undo Previous System Restore".
I ended up downloading PandoraRecovery2.0.1 and found that a few music files were still in the hard drive in a file named "sysprep" & "unallocated files and folders", but 99% of the filenames I didn't understand. The others still had the original names.
Is there any way I can get all my pictures and music files back?
