HELP!!! Please! :)

I found a virus "ccollgatee" in my pc... i asked from this site and he/she helped me out a lot! i followed everything he/she posted and the virus was gone however, i must have clicked on something... apart from what she said... which may have triggered losing all the files... there are 6 of us using this pc, 6 folders too but only my files weren't deleted... is there any way that i could still recover those files?? they're really important! PLEASE HELP ME!! :tazz: :)

6 users with 6 user accounts? or six users who were storing things in different folders?

If c:\documents and settings only has your folders. I would remove the harddrive and place it in another machine, then run a file recovery utility on the drive

Here is a freebie

The reason I suggest removing the drive is to prevent any further file writes to it....the more you use the drive the less likely you will be able to recover things from it
