Turn of Wireless, uplug network


If on a Domain login to a local account say Administrator, this may not have
a password, if you have no account use password change utility of boot CD


uncheck the "hide" and "system files" in explorer in Tools\Folder Options


Replace UserAccountName with your own on the computer

Direct you search to folder Temp in:

C:\Documents and Settings\"UserAccountName"\Local Settings\Temp

Search with wild cards *.doc *mylostfile*.*

If found copy to C:\backup folder reboot and login to local account or domain

hope this helps, tried system restore but no files found. This problem is not
just on sp3 or IE but in general I think with some system updates
