I'm running a HP Pavilion computer with Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Should have done a Windows XP System Restore, but instead restored the computer to factory condition using the computer mftr.'s recovery process. Is there a way to reverse this with out losing all my programs and files?

About the best you can do at this point is slave the drive and use something like http://www.piriform.com/recuva to try to recover the lost items.

If you cannot slave the drive, then you can install this on that machine and try to save it, but the more you install and use that drive the more data will be lost and unrecoverable.
