Vista....My documents have disappeared....When I boot up the documents can be seen on the desktop but after the boot is completed the documents disappear and I cannot trace them. Would appreciate any advice.

Have tried using search bar from start button, this traces the icon but when clicked I get the message 'file cannot be found'

Thanks for your assistance.Unforunately I have tried the above but nothing appears in my search box as i have Vista. I have just downloaded'everything' as in your reply and it has found all my files,just need to work out now how to get them all back in my folder. I have an external hard drive,would it be easier to save to this and then transfer back or is there a quicker way?
