In the intervening period between your original post and now, I have dealt with a fair number of other matters.
It appears I may have misread this time what exactly you are trying to do.
I apologise for this.
When you used the recovery partition, there is frequently a SOFT recovery and a FULL recovery - not always using those words.
The Soft recovery - reinstalls the operating system, but SHOULD leave your personal data intact.
The full recovery formats the drive and reinstalls ALL as it was when it was first sold.
When you created the backup disc mentioned in your first post - it again depends on how the computer recovery was setup and if it simply said that you should backup your personal data by way of documents, images, audio files etc and your favourites from IE etc, then when you reinstalled these, it may well be that they have reinstalled to a user account on C Drive BUT NOT the account created when you performed the recovery.
If you have found these files
I have everything back, I did it all again and wrote it down to show you, and then I found a file called user, clicking on that it was all in there. Now I only have to figure out how to get it back where it all came from. Thank for your help Albert
which I read this above as meaning that you had, then you may simply follow the porcedure in my post 10.
ALTERNATIVELY access the data and from the My Documents - copy and then paste to the My Documents in the account on the new installation.
Then do the same with the music and the pictures - videos etc..
Insofar as relates to the favourites for IE - it depends how they were saved but
Click Import and Export
Click Import from a file
Proceed to browse to the file where you have it either on the CD or on the installed file on where you have found them
and then follow the rest of the procedure as explained on the windows that open.
