Re: System restore assistance
You are using Vista right? The last system restore point was one from January? Were you pictures and such erased before then? If after that date then simply restore your PC to a date before the date your stuff was lost and should recover them.

Re: System restore assistance
Use the system restore that is built into Vista. Go to the control panel and then click on Backup and Restore Center. Then click on restore your entire computer option, then it will show you the "snapshots" of your computer that can date back to October, however that may be too far ago. You will just have to check and see and then choose one before that October date your pictures where erased. If you need any other help just ask.
