Any idea what you last opened on any site ?

Did you have any AV software installed or a firewall ? Was it up to date ?

Did the hard drive make any strange sounds before you lost information ?

Is it your own PC or part of a network at work ?

Its almost impossible for a virus to delete absolutely everything, programmes and pictures yes, operating software, no.

Some of the later Windows systems have recovery or (in ME) snapshot programmes, allowing you to find some of the original data from a time before the trouble occurred.

I've opened, I believe GGF_1351.zip, which I've downloaded from some site, don't know which.
I had Norton AV, but it wasn't up to date.
The HD didn't make any strange sounds and it's my own PC.
Drive C: is Ok, but other logical drives are empty, erased.


I've tried to Update Norton AV, but it looks like that i have another virus which Shuts Down all my programs.

Please help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
