Re: Lost movies - please help
Well, I was trying to help, it wasn't pointless.
Usually you need to spend at least $40 for a professional to get the data back for you, after a reformat.
Try using system restore to remove the updates, if you can't, manually remove each with Add/Remove programs.
If it works, remember to thank me or I will curse you. I am fed up of helping and not getting thanks.
Also, you posted it in the incorrct forum in the first place, something that is generally frowned upon here.
