I'm not familiar with those wallets, but I think it would be reasonable to assume that so long as the data is there, you should be able to access it.  You could try reinstalling the wallets, and backup any files that may contain the keys, or learn more about the wallets and find out how to access your keys without opening the programs.

Always backup your keys.

Ya I see the data in the roaming folder. I noticed a wallet.dat file in both colossuscoin and cryptojacks folder looks like it was autosaved. Synchronizing both wallet right now and going to try and use these wallet.dat files, fingers crossed!

Thanks Og, moved the old files, installed it again and just replaced the wallet.dat file and bam! My money is back
