Re: Vista sucks,help?
Sorry to be the one to tell you but I think your files are long gone. I'm thinking that if you've been surfing the net, downloading stuff, and done a system restore (all since you deleted a system file) that your information has probably been overwritten at least once. There may be ways that a professional recovery company could find your files but I doubt that you can get them back yourself. Someone may recommend a different recovery program that might have a chance but I would think the odds are against you. There are unfortunately a few lessons learned here : always backup files that you can not afford to loose - do not delete anything unless you know it is safe to do so (especially system created files) - if you do accidentally delete something that you need back and it is not in the recycle bin then immediately stop using the machine and use a bootdisk/usb stick recovery type program that accesses, but does not write to the hard drive.
