About a month ago the guy who did my computer work did a total overhaul and he really screwed it up. Among other things, he installed a counterfeit copy of windows 7. I lost all kinds of stuff. I understand there is a way to go back and reload all my stuff, as it was before he screwed m out of $00.00 and left town. Any ideas?

It depends what he did? If you have any restore points left then you may have a chance to roll your computer back the the latest restore point.

If he took the computer back to its factory condition then all is probably lost.

I used to tell my students "Back up every file that you don't want to have to create again. Do it yourself, file by file, and don't rely on any proprietary back up software."

For my friends who aren't terribly computer literate I set them up so everything backs up to the cloud. Then when they lose or break their computers, they haven't lost their photos and data. I suggest that whatever else you do, when you get it up and running, set up a Dropbox account (very easy to use but limited space unless you share it to devices to earn more space or pay for the space) or Microsoft's very generous OneDrive. They want you to set up an Outlook or Hotmail email address to use it, but since most computers these days want you to use the Windows cloud, why not, and save yourself the grief of lost files in the future?

Adrive is also pretty generous

50gb of free storage is pretty good.

I have been testing Mega, a site reputed to be extremely secure. Out of New Zealand.

You can create a shortcut for yourself in your browser. Save it as the home page for your browser, highlight the web address (in the top bar) and drag it onto the bookmark bar of your browser. Or use your existing home page plus open a new tab and navigate to mudcat's home page, then go into the browser settings and tell it to open the existing pages as your home pages each time you open the browser. It will automatically open your current home page and mudcat in the next tab over.

Overall, I think the easiest is to drag the URL into your bookmark bar, It will be in view on the top of the page. How to show your bookmarks bar and How to drag links to your bookmark bar.

If you have Windows and if you have trouble finding stuff... even IF no one has screwed up things... this program is your friend!

http://www.indexyourfiles.com/

"Is Portable
Support Unicode
Search Inside Files
Is easy to use with a standard windows GUI
Compacts the indexes
Create indexes for Only the directories you select
Internal display for found files
Is compact and runs from a Single file
Find files on your own computer or network with great speed and simplicity"

It is incredibly fast at doing the index, and once done, a search is almost instantaneous. I just used it this morning to find everything I had by Joe Heaney.

(It will do any & all your drives...internal or external.)
