.max files I lost a few weeks back.

Try disabling that function and maybe you might be able to find it again. Windows Restore only will revert back the software and not the actual files that were no backed up by Windows Restore since that function is just to backup specific system files just in case.

Another thing that makes me think of this program is an incident where I set the database directory to a removable drive. Anytime I started ACDsee and the drive was not mounted, the program would crash and not allow me to view photos. There was no way to override this behavior which I consider poor programming design.

I use a Live Windows CD that I created using UBCD4Win. The Live CD helps limit the usage on the hard drive and the accidental of overwriting what you want to recover. You may also need to add to that CD GetDataBack FAT32 or NTFS depending on your file system, which is the software that I use to recover deleted files, this CD may contain it but I can't remember.
I can verify that this method worked for me as I keep this CD around as a safe guard, but I have probably added more software onto mine that was required and removed things I wouldn't use.

I would be curious to know what software this was as well.

More seriously, I don't think that system restore could change something, because it mainly concerns the Windows registry, not the data.
I would better look if the files are not simply lost in your folders somewhere under a strange name. So, maybe you should first make a "search" using Windows Explorer, looking for all the "jpg" files, if you see 100 jpg files in the same folder then you did it.
The second way is the old good "undelete" program, I even don't know if it still exists, maybe another forummer her can talk about this ?

I had a photo loader software installed on my computer. This prog indexed a couple of hondred photos I had.
Yesterday I uninstalled the prog form my computer without considering the posibility that the folder containing my photos would be deleted too, which it did. My question is this, what if I used system restore? would it restore my photos too? Or would it simply restore just the prog files only?
ThnX in advance
