Hi, if you go to "start" - computer - organize - folder and search options - view - and then scroll down, and uncheck the box that says "hide folders" and this should fix problem. if your folders appear on your desktop, a lighter shade, then right click and unhide.

i am using Vista, but they should all work similar. hope this helps.
