Yesterday I logged in to my laptop and it was as if it was a brand new computer - no documents, photos, music, bookmarks or any programs I've installed over time. After going through some initial online research as to what the problem could be, I went into the control panel and chose to see hidden folders/files and that's where I found a number of folders, including all of my user profiles, are hidden.
I downloaded MalwareBytes and installed it in safe mode. Ran it and it is showing no malicious items. Did some reading on this site and am going to re-run it in normal mode.
I tried to run "unhide" utility I found here and it did not unhide any of the items.
My OS is Windows 7. Any guidance would be appreciated,
