If you are running Windows XP you can do a system restore. Go back to yesterday. If the files are something you created today you can try something like Tune Up Utilities Undelete, free trial.

About a month ago I lost all my pictures, favorites and had to reload my Norton. Everything is still in the computer somewhere, only I don't know what happened or how to find and get them back. Please help...


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, it all depends on what has happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that tells the system where the data for those files is located. The area containing the deleted data is also now marked as free space so it is available for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it is too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some good file recovery software. One I used to use is this data recovery program which you can download from site below

Computer is slow


Optimize the Windows Recyle Bin
Do you often send a lot of junk files to your computer's recycle bin? It's nice to be able to delete your unwanted files quickly and with just a click of a button. One of the great features about the Windows Recycle Bin is that files aren't immediately deleted, so if you make a mistake, you can restore the files quickly. Despite how easy the process seems, it can be a pain dealing with the slowed performance speed of your computer if your recycle bin isn't properly configured.


Clear all temporary files stored in ur PC by typing " %temp% "(without quotes) in Run from start menu. It shows bulk of files, delete all those.

Then type "msconfig" (without quotes) it opens a window in that choose startup and uncheck the unwanted files to be loaded during startup.

Increase ur RAM memory if its very low.
if u find its not sufficient, reply me with specifications of ur PC. Surely i'll help u........

How do I delete items


Hello,

The easiest way to delete items on your PC is by moving your pointer on it, then right click on it and select delete.

Remember though that when you do this, it is still on your PC, and if you want to get rid of it totally, just go and double-click on the recycle bin on your desktop, then delete the same file from it.

Alternatively, if you want to delete files COMPLETELY without letting it pass through recycle bin at all, when you are deleting it, just press and hold down the shift key while clicking on delete.

This deletes the item totally from your system and it will not even pass through the recycle bin.

Please be careful when you are using this 2nd option because any file you delete this way has left your PC TOTALLY.

Hope this helps.
Goodluck

Deleted stuff from recycle bin


Unfortunately no, once the recycle bin is deleted, it removes the files entirely. If the files are very important to you, there's a small chance that they could still be retrieved, but you would have to seek assistance from a Data Recovery service specialist in your area. There are some programs out there that you could purchase as well, that may be able to recover deleted files as well, and would be much cheaper than a data recovery service would, but there's also no guarantee through either of those methods if the results would be successful. My only suggestion at this point, if you want to increase the chances of the data being recovered, is to try and keep your computer as unused as possible, don't add or remove files, don't put stuff in the recycle bin. The reason I say this, is that files, even after their deleted, may leave remnant information behind on the hard drive platters themselves, and if you overwrite those specific sectors with more information, the leftovers usually get written over as well, thus being lost for good. Hope this helps!

I delete a file of my laptop


If you accidentally deleted your file, you can usually find them in the recycle bin except when your bin is configured to delete files once it gets there.

If this is not possible, there are many file recovery softwares available in the internet. The appropriate one depends on how your hard drive was formatted (i.e., FAT or NTFS). The earlier you try to retrieve those deleted files, the better your chances of getting it in good shape. If you have already typed in new files, some of the contents will be lost because they will be overwritten.

I deleted the recycle icon by accident i would like to get it back please?


Assuming you didn’t turn off all your desktop icons (right-click your desktop, choose View from the menu, and choose Show Desktop Icons if it doesn’t have a check next to it, which will turn them back on), it’s easy to get back, so stop your sweating and follow these simple steps.
  1. Right-click on your desktop and choose Personalize

  2. Click on the Change Desktop Icons link in the upper left hand corner
    delrb2.jpg
  3. In the Desktop Icons Settings window, check the Recycle Bin box and click OK
    delrb7.jpg
WORKAROUND in case the above does not work loadTOCNode(1, 'workaround'); If you cannot restore the Recycle Bin by using the resolutions that are listed in this article, work around this issue by creating a shortcut to the Recycle Bin: 1. Click Start, and then click My Computer. 2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 3. Click the View tab, and then click to clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 4. Click Yes when the warning message appears, and then click OK to close the Folder Options dialog box. 5. Click Folders on the toolbar.

Note If Folders is not visible on the toolbar, point to Toolbars on the View menu, and then click Standard Buttons. 6. In the left pane, under Folders, locate the Recycle Bin folder, and then drag the Recycle Bin folder to the desktop. 7. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 8. Click the View tab, and then click to select the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. Click OK.Note This procedure does not re-create the original icon. However, this procedure restores most of the features of the Recycle Bin, including the following: • Delete a file by dragging it to the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop. • Retrieve a file that you deleted by double-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, right-clicking the file that you want to retrieve, and then clicking Restore. • Empty the Recycle Bin by right-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, and then clicking Empty Recycle Bin. When you use these step to work around the problem, you cannot right-click the Recycle Bin shortcut to access the Recycle Bin Properties. To set properties for the Recycle Bin, follow these steps: 1. Double-click the Recycle Bin shortcut on the Desktop. The Recycle Bin folder opens. 2. In the upper left corner of the Recycle Bin folder, right-click the Recycle Bin icon, and then click Properties.
