Basically, i was trying to look for my AppData file in my Vista computer. But i couldn't find it. So i thought it may be hidden, so i right clicked and ticked hidden and a process went about pretty much hiding everything i had. So after realising this i unhid everything and MOST of my things came back. My documents were still there thankfully but alot of things weren't.

Also, my "Users" folder has completely dissapeared. It is non existant.

Also, my quick toolbar at the bottom left next to the start button is also gone.
As with my Network folder and everything :huh:

Basically, i don't know if everything is hidden or is just completely reset or something.

I don't know if you need my specs but im not thinking straight right now.


EDIT: Okay, i think i got my users folder back from hidden status. And a bunch of other stuff. My quick launch doesn't have the "show desktop" icon anymore which i found useful.

Have you gone to Start>Control panel>Taskbar and Start menu, and looked for it there?
