What is system restore?

Question

?Back in March 2004, got a virus which required a hard drive wipe (done at Data Doctors).

Reinstalled all software. All data was present with the exception (which I only discovered

recently) of the address book in Corel WordPerfect Suite 8 (which contained over 100 names and addresses used for Christmas cards and the like). Using the “find” function, it appears to be

present, but is partially in text, partially in “computereze” - little squares? Can I get the data

back?
