My computer was fine around 20 minutes ago.
When an error message came up. My computer then crashed and i have reloaded.
All my documents have been deleted. Being a student, all school work has been deleted.
Also, half the list of programmes on my start menu have disapeared, including, accessories, where i thought possibly i could system restore to an earlier date. Is there another way i could restore?
Or am i screwed?
