No matter how fast or shiny computers might be when they're new, they all seem to get slower over time. That state-of-the-art PC you bought last year might not feel like such a screamer after you install a dozen programs, load it with antispyware and antivirus tools, and download untold amounts of junk from the Internet.

BootMed is not a program. It's an Ubuntu-based boot disc tailored (or "remixed," in BootMed jargon) with the idea of recovering failed or malware-infected Windows PC installations. More than that, it's also aimed at helping less tech-savvy users through the process. The first thing BootMed does after booting is open Firefox and browse to the BootMed site to display help and advice on recovery operations. I'm sure the idea of using Linux to help teach Windows users how to recover their files has invoked a few chuckles amongst the Linux community as well as grimaces from Microsoft, though it's nothing radically new: I use Slax and Parted Magic all the time to recover data from Windows PCs. BootMed is not dead-simple--you must at least understand the concepts involved and be fairly proficient at navigating a file system--but it's a boon for less experienced users that want to learn the basic processes of recovery and of course, recover things.
