About three days ago I felt like adding a guest account to my Windows Vista laptop. Somewhere along the way I read some kind of warning about losing certain types of information and decided I didn't want the guest account, but I believe I clicked on something to activate it anyway. (I haven't been able to locate the warning since.)

Since I've realized the guest account was on I have switched it back to off. But when I went back into my normal account everything was set back to the computer's default and all of the documents I created were gone, as well as a few minor programs I added.

What I need to know is where my information could have just dissapeared to, or why it was deleted, and most importantly, is there a way for me to get it back?

The only thing I've done so far is check my D drive for a recovery file of some sort, and the only thing that was there was a recovery file from before I even purchased the computer. I don't know what else I could do to locate my lost files.


I was able to fix it with system restore. So so so sorry about this.
