What is WinPE and where does one get it?

When you boot up to a Talking WinPE, it's just like booting into another computer with NVDA talking, and your C drive is there in computer for you to open and copy files from, as well as do repairs, or even a virus check of a drive that is not currently in use, which is the best way to find computer viruses, because they are not hiding in memory.

If someone can burn a copy of Talking WinPE for you, you can boot to that, and copy out your important files before restoring it to factory new settings.

Sorry to hear about your issue, I do agree that you will have to start from scratch again and retrieving your files will be quite the task which should be left to a technician. For future reference or for anybody else. If you have a smart phone and can download and use the Seeing AI app by Microsoft it will read out what is displayed on your screen if you don't have screen reader output. I know this doesn't help you now but for the future. Take your PC to a qualified shop to see what they can do to keep your files and restore your OS. Good luck.

That was the wrong thing to do. When narrator tells you not to shut down the computer it means exactly that. Now you will need to reformat the hard drive.
