|I need to know if I can recover my files.|
After a spyware attack, my computer could not boot properly. (Compaq V2000 Presario) -- i could not find the recovery disk for this, so I borrowed a German (! stupid me) Windows XP CD to see if I could do something with it. My fear is that, by starting a setup for Windows XP, my files are all gone. I have stopped installing at step 4/5 of the setup process (the actual installing of windows). Can anyone give me any insight on whether or not my files can be recovered, and how I could figure out if my files are still on my computer? I am in the process of buying a new computer, so I could care less about the computer itself, but I would like to recover my valuable files. If anyone can help, that'd be great. PS -- I did order a recovery cd today to see if that would help. I will receive it in a few days, if that helps.
