I recently ran the eset online scanner (Monday.. today is Wednesday.. Yes it took 3 days to do a full scan on all my connected hard drives).. I wanted to recover a few of the files that eset deleted, so I check marked them and clicked on recover, this was last night.. And now I get no-response from the eset program. HOW do I get back the files that I lost? And yes I let it run all night.

Quarantined files are stored in "C:\Users\%User%\Local Settings\ESET\ESETOnlineScanner\Quarantine" . The content of quarantined is removed when you tick "Delete application data" at the end of a scan.

I didn't click delete when closing, but when I look at the files under the folder you suggested, it is all encrypted, with names like this: 

  0B11FE5F29F0F554107672130B5BF000882A51F1.NQF

I guess all my programs are lost.. :(

You can get them decrypted either by:
1, submitting them to ESET and asking for decryption
2, installing ESET, putting the files to the quarantine folder and restoring them from quarantine.

WOW.. I did not know that. :)

Thank you. You have been very helpful.

I may just give eset a try. It can't hurt.

Again thank you so very much for your time and all your help.
