This is a known issue with the MS beta AntiSpyware (and remember, "beta"
means software that isn't finished yet and still in the bug-checking
phase). You can try posting your question in one of the newsgroups set
up for that program (see below) and see if anyone else experiencing
your problem knows how to get your files back, but I would guess that
unless you run data recovery software on your hard drive (and don't do
anything on the drive until you do), the files are gone.

At this time, support for the beta version of Microsoft Windows
AntiSpyware is being provided through the following Microsoft
newsgroups:

- microsoft.private.security.spyware.announcements
- microsoft.private.security.spyware.appcompat
- microsoft.private.security.spyware.general
- microsoft.private.security.spyware.install
- microsoft.private.security.spyware.networking
- microsoft.private.security.spyware.signatures
- microsoft.private.security.spyware.onlinecommunity

These newsgroups can be accessed via NNTP or HTTP. To access these
newsgroups using HTTP, please go to the following location:

http://communities.microsoft.com/newsgroups/default.asp?ICP=spyware&sLCID=us

To access these newsgroups using NNTP, please use the following
information for your NNTP client (such as Microsoft Outlook Express):

- NNTP Server: privatenews.microsoft.com
- Account name: privatenews\spyware
- Password: spyware

NOTE: No password will be required via the HTTP link.

When MSAS detects Kazaa as a pest it offers to remove it, all of it -
including any downloaded music in the Kazaa shared folder. This shows you
that people don't read. If they did read, choose to "ignore always", Kazaa
is not detected again and the shared folder is safe.
