    Got a friend who had a bunch of digital camera pics of her baby on a hard drive upon which her little brother released a variant of the ILoveyou virus. Knowing that the files have been deleted and replaced with virus files, anyone got a best suggestion for what tool to use to try and restore what might be left of the original files?

    Thanks for your help.

    To my knowledge there is no way to restore most damaged media files affected by the loveletter worm (an exception may be mp3s) . I do strongly suggest, however, that steps be taken to disable the Windows Scripting Host which this and other similar (and even more dangerous) worms exploit.
