Hi guys,
I recently got a virus on my laptop, everything got sorted by a guy I hired, but since I got it back, I noticed that loads of things had been deleted (games, music folders, etc). However when I search for such programs/files, they still show up, but I can't run them! So essentially whatever I had before is gone and can't be used, but they still take up hard drive space!

Can anyone help?

I've driven 102,888 extra miles for every 1 mile an environmentalist has walked....
Get the guy to have another look at it? Restore from an older system restore point?

Are you sure they still take up hard-drive space, or have they gone, and only the shortcuts got left behind?
