Well, the other day when the laptop pooped out on me I did a scan to delete any viruses. Guess what got deleted? Chaz's SOS and work! Aghhhhhh! I was so excited to have 3 computers again to work on and this had to happen. I spent the entire day yesterday trying to figure out what happened and see if it can be fixed. I cried not knowing what I was gonna do. Sure, I could reinstall the program but I had not created backup disks. Oh my. I literally spent the entire day searching for deleted files using a program. Most cost money and even with the scans I did I wasn't finding anything. I finally had to quit so I could get everyone ready for church but I was soooooo vexed. I tried to be a good mood when I got there but I was just sooo sad.
Since I got the black laptop fixed, which meant all 3 computer were working again for homeschool, do you think anything else went wrong? Of course. The next morning the power cord on my silver laptop broke. We are back down to two working computers. Phooey.
If system restore doesn't work there is a program you can use that find things you did not mean to delete and can't be found. Here is the video of how to do it and what program you can use.
