Help

My Acer Ferrari 1100 with windows vita developed either a virus or windows was corrupted and after attempting all repairs I reloaded windows (successfully ) returning the laptop to factory condition. I did this as I had an up to date all users backup on a usb stick. Now when I attempt to restore the files I get a message 'Windows was unable to load the files due to a problem with the backup catalogue' any ideas would be appreciated ( in low tech language please )

Perhaps it would be helpful - restoring separate files and folders.
