lost files? o.0

so i was doing my normal stuff and then a fake anti-virus protector came up and blocked everything in the impatient man i am i quickly made a new account on my PC and deleted the one i was on and now i can't find all the itune apps over 100 like the game-loft action pack i bought last night and was planing to sync today

"are you sure your gonna be okay here all by yourself?" "ya. i just need to watch out for some homicidal psycho teenage girls with ridiculously vivid hair colors who want to destroy me. other than that im perfectly fine."

That is definitely pretty impatient. You didn't think to try and get rid of it, maybe?

If your new profile on the computer is an Administrator, I believe you can look at the files that are between all the people that have shared the computer, but... I'm not 100% sure if it will work now that you deleted that other profile.

And pro-tip: Making a new profile on the computer doesn't grant you total immunity from viruses on other profiles . I think.

I think you can go to iTunes and just check for available Downloads

you can redownload all your purchases for free. just go to the app's page and click "buy". you won't get charged.

In the future, you should backup your apps: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showpo...61&postcount=5

Yes. You have to redownload using the same account you purchased the app with. If it's a different/new account you'll get charged.
