My previous laptop (Toshiba 2410 satellite XP Home) crashed after I tried to remove some infected files that had been detected by AVG Free scan. Everything was wiped. Indicated "Isass exe - system error. An invalid parameter was passed to a service or function". I used the Toshiba product recovery discs and reinstalled Windows and started whole set-up from scratch. Now works normally but all previous wiped out. Is it possible to rescue those lost files/photos as some had not been backed up at the time?
Thanks for the advice. I tried the Recuva download but it did not recover anything of use, just blank jpegs and headers etc. No files or photos. My loss was total following the crashed described previously and then I reinstalled windows from the recovery cd. Don't think I'm going to have any luck with this one. Tks.
