    When you reinstalled the OS, did you perform a clean install or an implace upgrade or repair?

    Clean install wipe out the drive - format reinstall
    Repair - choose repair option
    Implace upgrade reinstalled windows over itself

    Also are all the old application available or you had to reinstall them?

    If you look at C:\ Document and Settings do you see your old profile which contains the old data?
    Have you tried to do a search for the all data using windows search?
