Lets give this a try:

Try Tune Up Trial, run file recovery, undelete, show only files in good condition, restore to a folder you make if the original location went with the re-install
http://www.tune-up.com/

Tune up and Office Recovery did not work.

File Scavenger did but it only lets you pull 64k of any file off without buying a license. The license is more reasonable $45.

Anything else that you can think of or is that my best bet?

Sorry for the delay, I have been researching all the while for a good recovery program. I will post a reply as soon as I find one. I am discussing this with my mates at the moment.

Thanks for all of the hard work on this!

I'll hold off on any purchases until I hear from you.

:tazz:

None of the suggested software free ware worked so I bought the full license of the other for $45 and ran it this weekend. It worked beautifully and my files are now restored. I formatted my D: drive and am back in business.

Thanks again for all of your help. I have since installed a firewall, MS's spyware scanner and some antivirus software to ensure that this never happens again.

Again, you were very helpful.

Best regards

That is good to hear that all files were recovered. Okay I have some tips for you.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:
  • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
  • SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:and a good antivirus (these are also free for personal use):It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visitmonthly. And to keep your system clean run these free malware scannersweekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klein: So how did I get infected in the first place?
