Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

I'm a bit confused.

You say your friend has deleted all your files, yet you say you can click on an installer.

You need to be more specific. What files were deleted? Were they applications? Do you have backup discs?

The more information you can give us, the easier it will be to help you.
