Hi,

O am running WinXP PRO. I selected all the files in my hard drive and accedently put it on hidden and click ok. after that, i selected all the files again and unhided everything. but when i go to start and programs, it is emtpy. I changed the folder options to show all files and folders. icons on my desktop came back, but they are still hidden.(they are unclear and blurred) also, my programs folder is empty

any ideas on how to fix?

Hiya

When you reverted back from hidden, did you go to Tools | Folder Options. View tab. Hidden Files and Folders, click Show Hidden Files and Folders

If not, can you tell us what you actually did?

Hiya

Still trying to figure this out. When you put them all on Hidden, was it in your CDrive only? What I mean is, did you ahve Windows Explorer open, click on Local Disk (c) and then hide them all?
If so, have a look at you Program files in Explorer. They may still be hidden, as the Local Drive has loads of folders, that have folders, etc.

If no joy, let me know, and can you tell me if that was the actual ay that you 'hid' them.

Regards

eddie
