    Hey there!!! I have a Toshiba laptop with windows 7. My computer started doing free games than crashed on me. When I clicked on the start menu, all the programs were gone!!!! I asked for help and someone came to clean it, we got rid of 85 viruses (Trojan, worms and all those good things). Installed avast antivirus. Now the thing is this. Before the computer crashed I notice a new folder on my desktop, it was named after the name I gave my pc, let say Bob, that folder was named Bob and if I right click on it, it would not give me properties. But if I opened it, it was all my documents, program and all, like a clone of whatever was on my computer. Now that folder is still there, but the files in it are "NTUSER.DAT{very long number with letters}.TM.blf" files. I have lost all my documents, I cannot find programs on my computer, but things work (cannot find words, but I can create a new doc, very weird) If those NTUSER.DAT file contain my previous documents, can I recuperate them???
