please do so and paste the results to your reply
Exactly where are you saving these saved files and downloads? Please provide the full directory paths, starting from the drive letter. What software are you using to create and save the files and what software are you using to download the files? How are you making sure the files are actually being saved before restarting the computer?
when i open windows explorer, the libraries appear, how about the deleted files that keep comingback after i restart itI am reading several forums where people have experienced similar problems. What I am reading by one Microsoft MVP, is that Microsoft changed the behavior of the desktop from previous versions of Windows. It is a special system folder that should NOT be used to save files or folders containing files. From what I can tell, you can save your files to another location on the hard drive and have a shortcut for that location on the desktop.
As for your missing files, you could try:
1) Using Windows Explorer to view the contents of the Desktop folder.
2) Enable Windows 7 to show hidden and system folders and files.
There is a possibility that doing one or both may turn up your missing files.
