hi hope someone can help. i have done something silly and don't know how to get it back. i was looking to find my thunderbird email inbox. i followd the path c drive etc documents and settings and then you get all useres and then for my the sally user folder. i went into sally folder but couldn't find the next folder. so i thought it might be hidden. so i right clicked, ticked show hidden files on this folder only........and it vanished all that was there was the all useres folder. so i thought i hit the worng button. i went back to the documents and setting folder and done what i thought was the correct show hidden files thinking that i had made the last lot hidden. and the documents and settings folder vanished. so i have stopped and come running scared to here for help. many thanks sally

See if this will work - Setting – Control panel – Click Folders Options – Click View Tab

Select “Show Hidden Files and Folders” – Click Apply To All Folders – Click OK
