    I am using Vista on a Toshiba Laptop P-206. I have a large music collection. When I open the the folder, it's a faded yellow. All the sub folders but two, are faded. I went to Folder Options and made sure they were not hidden. I changed the names of the folders, but they're still faded. Help!

    I went to Control Panel, and selected folder options, and show hidden folders. Is there something else I should do?
