    Hello Purplelover,

    You might see if the free program Recuva may be able to recover the contents for you.

    I'm not sure what you mean by a "all kinds of JUNK downloaded with it".

    During installation, you would just uncheck the box to not have the toolbar installed if that is what you meant. This is what allows the program to be free, but is optional.

    The link in my post above is for the download page of Recuva at Piriform.

    If you are not happy with it, you can try a different one, like Wise Data Recovery
    Recycle bin folder is marked, time is essential to prevent deleted files from being overwritten.

    Recovering delted data


    I have a small program called File Wing.exe, which searches your hard drive for anything recoverable.

    You then need to sift through what it finds. Just do a search on File Wing, it is a free download.

    I was able to unistall all the "garbage 'that came with the program and hadn't installed it yet so I didn't mess my coputer up. It is scary installing programs that come with extra added programs in them.

    Thanks everyone,,,

    Sounds like you may have installed the wrong program then.
