Earlier today, for no reason as far as I know, I lost IE7. I could not open it even after rebooting 4 times. I also could not access any files on desktop that needed IE to work. Using FireFox I accessed the Microsoft website & downloaded IE8. I seem to have everything back except the Documents folder. The folder icon is on desktop but it's empty. I didn't have a lot of files in there but I do need the ones I did have. Are the files that were in this folder hiding somewhere else on the computer? Is there any way I can recover the missing files? I had intended to reinstall IE7 but that option was not available on the Microsoft side.
