Specs: Windows Vista
Ok so I don't know what the heck happened but I got on my computer today to find out none of my files were there!! There are some files on the recently changed folder but that's pretty much it!

Yesterday I was trying to get some photos out of my PSP memory stick and onto the computer, I clicked to view one photo and all hell broke loose! Like everything dissappeared from my desktop and there was no bar thing on the bottom of the screen, only the internet (which was previously opened) worked. I figured it was nothing and that it would come back, so I turned off my computer and just left it til' today...

So yeah now everything is gone!! PLEASE HELP!!!

Is it possible that you can run a anti-virus program?

Check your hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostics.
See the latter part of response 1 in this:

Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities

If you don't have a floppy drive, you can get a CD image diagnostic utility from most hard drive manufacturer's web sites, but obviously you would need to make a burned CD, preferably a CD-R for best compatibility, on another computer if you need to.

If the hard drive itself tests okay, any data problems found can be fixed, one way or another.
