Hi carleybrook,

Make sure your system is set to show files and folders. You can change this back again if it does not solve the problem.

Revealing Hidden Files

Please set your system to show all files.

Click Start, open My Computer, select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.

Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.

Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types
Uncheck: Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.

Does this help at all?
