I was hoping to hear a quick registry fix but just bit the bullet and did a deep System Restore and all the updates that went with it. Works fine now but will never know what caused it. Still open to any and all info.

How to view hidden files in Windows


Files can be hidden in Windows for a variety of reasons. Certain system files can be hidden so that a careless user doesn't accidentally delete or modify them. Personal files might be hidden by their creator so that other users can't view them. And malware or spyware programs might install themselves and hide the files to make them harder to find.

But whatever the reason a file is hidden, you can view hidden files if you want to in Windows. To set Windows to show hidden files, open a folder or go into Windows Explorer and under the Tools menu, click Folder Options. Go to the View tab, and under the heading "Hidden files and folders," click the radio button next to "Show hidden files and folders." Then click Apply or OK.

Now, when you view a folder that has a hidden file or subfolder in it, that file or folder will be visible. When you see a hidden file in a Windows folder, it will be listed right along with the rest of the files in that folder, but its icon or thumbnail will appear faded and pixellated. You can open it and access it just like any other file, but it's technically "hidden."

To change a file's attributes so it's not hidden anymore, right click on the file and select Properties. In the General tab, at the bottom, uncheck the box next to "Hidden" and click Apply. Now, when you view the folder where that file resides, it will look the same as the other files. (If you want to make the file hidden again, just go back into its properties and re-check the "Hidden" box and click Apply.)

Where is the subfolders


Sub folder means a folder in a folder. Just like My Music, My pictures are the sub folder with respect to My documents. The second thing is that there are some hidden folders and file that can be seen in normal view as there is an option for hidden files in MY Computer....>Tools in upper menu bar......>Options....>View and then select "Show My hidden files and folders." All the folders and sub folders will be shown.

best of luck!

I deleted the recycle icon by accident i would like to get it back please?


Assuming you didn’t turn off all your desktop icons (right-click your desktop, choose View from the menu, and choose Show Desktop Icons if it doesn’t have a check next to it, which will turn them back on), it’s easy to get back, so stop your sweating and follow these simple steps.
  1. Right-click on your desktop and choose Personalize
    delrb1.jpg
  2. Click on the Change Desktop Icons link in the upper left hand corner
    delrb2.jpg
  3. In the Desktop Icons Settings window, check the Recycle Bin box and click OK
    delrb7.jpg
WORKAROUND in case the above does not work loadTOCNode(1, 'workaround'); If you cannot restore the Recycle Bin by using the resolutions that are listed in this article, work around this issue by creating a shortcut to the Recycle Bin: 1. Click Start, and then click My Computer. 2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 3. Click the View tab, and then click to clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 4. Click Yes when the warning message appears, and then click OK to close the Folder Options dialog box. 5. Click Folders on the toolbar.

Note If Folders is not visible on the toolbar, point to Toolbars on the View menu, and then click Standard Buttons. 6. In the left pane, under Folders, locate the Recycle Bin folder, and then drag the Recycle Bin folder to the desktop. 7. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 8. Click the View tab, and then click to select the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. Click OK.Note This procedure does not re-create the original icon. However, this procedure restores most of the features of the Recycle Bin, including the following: • Delete a file by dragging it to the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop. • Retrieve a file that you deleted by double-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, right-clicking the file that you want to retrieve, and then clicking Restore. • Empty the Recycle Bin by right-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, and then clicking Empty Recycle Bin. When you use these step to work around the problem, you cannot right-click the Recycle Bin shortcut to access the Recycle Bin Properties. To set properties for the Recycle Bin, follow these steps: 1. Double-click the Recycle Bin shortcut on the Desktop. The Recycle Bin folder opens. 2. In the upper left corner of the Recycle Bin folder, right-click the Recycle Bin icon, and then click Properties.
