    I downloaded a game off this site- http://www.megagames.com/news/html/freegames/freegames.shtml

    This site is a very reputable site, i have never had any problems with it before, or any of its games.

    I unzipped the game War Rock onto my desktop, and then installed it. After trying it, i decided to uninstall it.

    It uninnstalled not just the game, but almost everything on my desktop, and everything inside those folders. What was left was the recycling bin, and about 5 random shortcuts. I lost perhaps 10-15 gigabytes of my files.

    I tried system restore, all the way up to the oldest restore point which was about a month ago. It didn't work because it saiud no changes were made to your computer.

    WHAT DO I DO????

    and you didn't back up your data, as you said? Chances are that data is toast.....you could try a repair disk, but if the data is gone, the data is gone.
