i turned my computer off by holding down the power button in fustration because it was being stupidly slow. When i turned it back on everything was gone.

Well...it's not gone, it's still all there. Just I can only get to my music/pictures/videos if i do a search for them.

I've tried system restore, did **** all.
Anyone know how i can fix it?

Stuff can't just disappear from a computer by itself... You probably had a virus or you did something stupid.

Anyway, try the system restore and the computer thread.

Don't turn it off by using the power button?

Seriously, that messes up it so bad it starts ****ting bricks after.

Did something happen to your explorer.exe? A virus deleted it once on my old computer so I had to download one off the internet except it was off a Spanish speaking website. So now when I use it, the start button says "Iniciar."

I got owned.

Did the big boy get angry at a computer? Jackass. The computer isn't rubbish, you are.

Next time turn it off properly, this time? Ask the computer thread, though I wouldn't be shocked if they couldn't give a flying Jean Claude Van Damme either

Mac's are lame, they DO break, they DO crash, they are just as unreliable as a PC if you can't run either properly.

Don't get a mac, just Lrn2Windows.

Macs DO get viruses. Just not so many, because once they've paid for the Mac, they've got no money left to steal.

What is your problem exactly? Did your files disappear, or you just can't search?
Try downloading Ubuntu 9.04 (or 8.10, 8.04, whatever) and boot it, livecd style, no installing - find anything you need on your HDD and backup it anywhere you want. If the linux distro doesn't find your files, they are most probably just gone.
OR
those files are deleted - in that case use a deleted files restoration program, there are quite a few of those

Or you can use that same money and build a computer that's 3x than any stock mac you'll get.

I'll chime in with my two cents and say that Macs are usually more reliable than Windows and get less viruses, which is because less viruses are written for them because there's not enough users to make it worth while. However, unless you're interested in Audio stuff, most stuff will run better on a PC because it's written for it.

Macs don't get viruses because nobody cares enough about them to bother.

Analogy:

"Oh crap! My Ferrari just got stolen.


Lol should've bought a Toyota Sienna. They're so superior and have the lowest stealing rate of all cars, with their super amazing security.
How's your Ferrari with only 2 seats, anyways?
OWNED!"

Macs better not slow down anyways, they're damn expensive.
The arena is empty except for one man,
Still driving and striving as fast as he can.
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup,
But he's driving and striving and hugging the turns...

Hackers don't make virus's for Macintosh computers because its not worth their time. Its so easy for hackers to design a virus that can infect Windows its not even funny. I listen to Leo Laporte's podcasts and shows, and every day people call in and say "my pc is infected, halp!". Want to know how many Mac user's call in and ask that? None.

Some basic assumptions:
People are stupid
People buy computers
Windows OS is on most computers
Windows OS is easy to infect

TLDR: Lots of stupid people using an OS that's easy to infect=hacker's wet dream.
