    For a few days my laptop was running slow. On December 27th around 2pm, I performed Disk Cleanup and deleted MSN. A few minutes later, I noticed Word Pad is gone, :eek: IE icon is gone (it will come up indirectly if a program requires it, so it's NOT completely gone), all of my Window games are gone, Sound Recorder, Calculator and Windows Media Player (icon is gone, but it will come up when I go to my Music file and click on a song). These are the ones I noticed.

    How Can I Fix This? I performed System Restore (that did NO good), Disk Check, Sfc/scannow, I checked out Event Viewer to see if I could fine where it went wrong. I also tried a program called 'FreeUndelete', but I wasn't sure which files to look for. I haven't had any luck yet! I thought about reinstalling Windows, but if I don't have to that would be great! :confused: Please help!

    It can be the issue that you have deleted the short cuts to the application as you are saying that the icons come up once you click the song that means the the application is there in the system just the shotcuts or the icons are missing, if you think that the applications have deleted the only solution which comes to my mind is to go for a data recovery software,

    you need to firstly scan the hard disk with the data recovery software no need to look out for the file those have been deleted the software will automatically tell you about the files recently deleted.stellar data recovery will provide you will the preview of the files you have deleted if and those can be recovered if you find the files or applications deleted recover them from the software else you need to reinstall
    then you are left with no other option.
