Ok, at least i was doing something wholesome! Trying to install a digital card reader Sony 17-n-1.....and for some unknown reason, put the drive letter recognition disk in....instead of just plugging in the thing to usb ports. Anyway, it said something like, do you want to continue, some work may be lost if programs running...etc....i had closed everything down......thought i was ok.....next thing i know (it was very very late at night!)...my admin user on win xp was gone!
I have looked for files from my admin user....no luck. I am stuck with the user i created for the kids.....none of my files to be found. What happened? Are they gone forever?? Help!!!!!!!

I would suggest going to to the hard drive maker's website and get there data recovery software.

But that's my opinion, as well as what I have seen the geeks suggest many times on data loss.

Also you could try a repair install on XP.

All this if 'System Restore' does not work.

System Restore

Restore to a time before this happened.
