I had a new gift from windows but alas it wasnt so, being 9pm and a bit tired I clicked and then it all went


I recently clicked on a link.. as soon as the page loaded sirens went off.. loud "BING BING BING".. it scared me and I clicked off immediately. Fortunately, nothing happened.. I attribute this to my Norton 360 LifeLock.

This is horrid, Nick. But I do admire your spirit.

Now go out there and make new photos!

So sad for you, Nick. No wonder you're in a state of shock. Good luck getting things back together again.


well as my old granny used to say " you don't cry over spilled milk ". and she was a canny wee lady with a spine of steel and a heart of gold ..

well all I can do is add programs as I need them off the web, I have uploaded Picasa
for its ease of uploading and use.I assume there are others.I had an early version of
Photoshop circa3 I think that was quite handy.

Well all I can say is be vigilent once they get into your photos, they may try for your wallet'

I am thinking of upgrading my PC and making a new start. my Sony Laptop is 10 or so and been upgraded and serviced regularly.

I did worse
Deleted ALL my original shots from the last 5 years (250,000 pictures)
trying to restore it but it will take 3 years of deep scan in my HDD
not entering anything from now on.

Like a phoenix, by hook or by crook your computer, regained or afresh, shall surely rise again. Good luck!

did a silly thing, clicked a link and in an instant wiped out everything on my computer.My local computer geek ,it hsn't
I am not a techy so it is going to take a while to get up and running before I can get going ie resizing shots etc.I even lost my elderly version of photoshop'.

I am still in a state of shock as to how I did such a stupid thing..

So bare with me as I try and get back again and get up and running
