I went to open an excel document today to find it had dissapeared!! In fact 90% of my files and folders have gone.
I eventually thought I'd found them in "My recent documents" - all of the missing stuff was listed but only as shortcuts, when clicking on them a message is displayed, This file has been changed or moved.
What's happened? I run xp pro and have never had issues like this before. Could it be a virus? I have avg, also spyware spybot and adaware and these haven't picked up anything.
The missing stuff appears to be random, I can't see any particular reason why the remaining 10% are still active, I just can't find these files anywhere.
I downloaded open office and wrote it to c.d for my laptop a couple of weeks ago but I don't recall doing anything else different recently.
