wow! that could be trouble....
Ok how "recent" was the formatt? I hope for your sake it was soon.

There are programs that can retrieve deleted and formatted files... google up free ones.

They would probably be called something like, undelete files or file recovery

what is your anti virus software, if it dodn't catch it Then Id get ride of it. If my AV didn't catch a virus and delete it ID reformat.

I use multiple programs to "clean" computers of infections. Prehaps one of these will work or use all of them for a better "clean"

AVG
Avast
Hijackthis
CDshredder
regseeker (not an AV or spyware program)
Spybot S & D
Adware SE Perssonel


As for getting files back use ERD as suggested.
