Today I saved about 500 new pictures (wedding and honeymoon pictures) to a public computer. Right after all the pictures were uploaded snd saved to the desktop a page poped up with message that a program or somethis ahs sucessfully downloaded and computer would like to do a restart. After restart i noticed that all the pictures are gone. Might it be due to CCleaner? If yes, is it possible to restore them some how? If not, if it\s just a bug or something, is there any other way to get it back then? I wanted to use System restore feature but there are only restore points from 2009 and somthing.

Please help me someone!!!!

Public computers should NOT use CCleaner.

They should always start up with a fresh image of everything as it should be so that the next user is not presented with the previous user's Internet banking login details ! !

What makes you think CCleaner was ever present on this public computer ?

I would say that your loss is entirely due to the way public computers work.

I think your only hope is to get those pictures a second time and save them to your personal flash drive.
