I didn't edit any pics or word documents. I just suggested that idea because I, well, I threw it out there.

What I did was a format (not a quick one) and then did a drive wipe with CCleaner, went to bed, and it was done in the morning. And now everything is taken care of. But...that drive wipe wasn't necessary, was it? All I needed was the complete format (not the quick one)?
