Thanks, I appreciate what you're trying to do, but believe me, the files are straight up gone. I accidentally may have deleted some programs that weren't meant to be touched. The weird thing was, that when my computer warned me not to delete said programs, I clicked 'cancel', but it went ahead and did it anyway. It's kind of hard to explain. I checked the recycle bin, I tried to restore previous Windows settings, I tried them all. It's gone.
Husband wants to check it tonight, but I don't think they are retriveable. Lesson learned: Always back up your stuffs. ;p
Daydreaming I will feel the coolness on my feet.

This is true, and we only have to look at the aftermath of WW II to see it is true.
The Russians liberated a number of East European States, but did not go home after the war. By contrast, the USA fought with us against Imperial Japan with large forces in Australia, but when the war was over, they went home.
And in 1951 we signed a military treaty with the US called the ANZUS Treaty, which has remained in force ever since. To that we have added a free trade agreement with the USA, which you might be pleased to know that the USA benefits more that Oz, but we are happy with it because we also benefit. And not content with that we signed the Antarctic Treaty with the USA as a signatory, banning mining and the military from Antarctica. This is important to us as we claim one third of Antarctica. As well, we are part of the Five Eyes, Australia, Britain, Canada, New Zealand, and the USA, an effective global surveillance network.
