no aol sounds like the best of all possible worlds...
do you ever create system restore files ... if so restore
your computer to the day before the power outage ...
windows xp is cool because it allows you to create restore

if you were smart enough to use system restore
start - programs - accessories - sysyem tools - system restore - create
restore point ... and so on
