    I was using my comp yesterday, everything was fine, i went into my computer, my D: drive (slave) and noticed it had 14gb free, a bit odd since 5min. ago it had 7gb free, i went into the drive and like 12 random folders were missing like my movies folder, Lots of my apps, JUST GONE, no trace. I HAD norton antivirus and updated definitions, nothing was found. It left me with over 115 registry error, so i reformated, i don mind much, i would just like to find the cause.....
    BTW I use WinME...

    Did your PC turned off all of the sudden or something, maybe you were accesing those files and when the PC turned off the file became corrupted therefore deleted...


    I dunno maybe it was that

    All I can think off is that this was a virus that went undetected by NAV

    You Better Keep In Mind That I Can Read Between The Lines

    do you still have registry keys of any programs that were deleted?

    or were they wiped also?

    you could also try googling for a "recovery program" and see if they can be recovered.

    it likely can be recovered.

    or a system restore?

    one time my comp wiped a lot of my devices, so i system restored and i got them back.
