    I recently had to recover my XP because of a problem installing some new ( but outdated) software.

    This worked but now My Documents is showing empty and none of my files are present. If I search them using the search function I can locate them but there are thousands of files in there. I tried messing with the hidden settings in the file properties but this does not seem to be the issue. :(

    In a related note, I can not get SP 2 to update and have had no luck using the support website. So, I tried installing service pack 3 for professionals and that cased a crash.
