I'm wondering if you did Factory Restore. System Restore (from Windows) should not have touched your pictures unless they were put in system areas.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

And regardless of what actually you did on this occasion. Develop the practice and habit of "regularly' copying (duplicating) all your important/personal files to external media - typically DVD, but also an external hard drive too (if possible). That way that in event of "any" problems your personal files (photos not the least) are safe elsewhere. Sadly so may don't duplicate and/or save important files off the system; and then lose them when things go wrong...

Can you go into "computer" click on your hard drive.....do you have a folder called "Windows.old"????

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!
