Also try to plug it in a Linux OS computer or MacOS.

In case you get your data back, you need to avoid the root cause: getting the virus. Your computer probably has virus. Best to way to be 100% sure to eliminate virus: do a clean OS install. Avoid getting virus but NOT using things like Limewire or any similar programs, do click on unknown emails, or hacked game clients and such. As former computer service manager I see many people getting viruses from doing things they are not supposed to do. Do not rely solely on antivirus.
