Well, with regret, I have to say I got hit with a virus. Every file and folder in c: and my external was hidden. After days of researching, I was able to find a temporary resolution with a program called Attribute Changer. I ran this program and then I was able to see my folders and files....well, kind of. The files and folders are showing but in a light shade for some reason. When I share the folders with another Computer in the house, I can see the folder as I did before, but when I open it, I see nothing again. Assuming that the attribute changer is doing something on my desktop that only allows that computer to view the files. Is this a temporary fix and if so, how can I get my files back?
