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.

All the pictures i had have disappeared and my memory card says no images! when i tried to get them processed it just kept counting up images to over a thousand..


Hi. The most probable cause for this problem is a virus. Your memory card might be infected and the virus might have hidden your files. You can check this by scanning the memory card using an updated antivirus, then unhiding all hidden files. To do this (after scanning the memory card), open Windows Explorer, go to "Tools >> Folder Options >> View" On the advanced settings, Hidden Files and Folders option, click the "Show hidden files and folders" button. Uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types". Click OK to save the settings.
Now go to your memory card via "My Computer" or Windows Explorer to view the files (images). You can unhide them so they may be accessible again.
Hope this helps.
