Documents and settings is hidden


First, open Folder Options either through the Control Panel, or click the Tools/View menu on Windows Explorer and click Options or Folder Options. Click the VIEW tab then locate and select the SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS option, then click APPLY/OK. Afterwards, you should be able to see the DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS folder. You may then right-click on it and choose Properties then uncheck/deselect the HIDDEN option and click APPLY/OK. If you prefer, you can then go back to the Folder Options to hide HIDDEN FILES/FOLDERS from Windows Explorer again.
