I downloaded the tool and ran it. I removed all the folders it wanted to search except the external i have the back up on. Took around 30 minutes to complete and could view those files again. All word docs, jpegs, and audio files work again.

I notice now i have duplicates of all files. One with the file extension .html(BAD) and one with the actual file extension(GOOD). Now all i have to do is delete the bad files and everything will look like normal again.

Thank you guys very much!

Nice to know that worked!! Now, change ALL your passwords, using a different (clean) computer, and make sure you're not set up using a 'proxy'.
