Help with my computer please!!?

August 3, 2012

Ok, I logged onto my account on the computer this morning and everything was gone except for firefox, my camera program stuff like that but it deleted all my documents and pictures and everything. My background is also deleted and is now a dark blue colour and I can’t change it. My internet is also weird all the font is small and the tabs are gray instead of white. I’ve used my scanner recently and there wasn’t any problems so what’s wrong with it? My other account on the computer is fine except you have to keep using the ccleaner and deleting to history and everything just to log into facebook. It also keeps saying low disk space and there’s clearly tons of disk space. Is there a program I can use to help me get everything back and possibly a new free virus free scanner? Any help would be nice. Thanks!
