Hi, and thanks for using

Please open (My) Computer, then open the C: drive, then open the Users folder (or Documents and settings folder if Users folder is not available), then check each account folder and subfolders for your files/program icons.

If that does not work, how did you do the recovery? Did it reinstall windows/reset the computer to factory settings? Did it give you any warning?

Thank you.
