    I am working on a friend's hp laptop that had a lot of viruses.  I ran recovery console and it would't save the data so I had to do a clean install.  I ran power data recovery and saved the data.  How can I restore the saved data to the original locations?  Thanks for any help.  Greatly appreciated.

    Where did you save the data and did you test the saved data before doing the clean install?
    One good deed is worth more than a year of good intentions.

    DO NOT restore data from a previously infected computer without first running a scan on that data. As far as restoring it from Power Data Recovery is concerned, I"m not familiar with that software - in what format did it save the data?
