All my icon shortcuts/links have disappeared. Also, all tiles not actually part of Windows (except Firefox and Chrome) have disappeared. An smtmp folder, which has something to do with icons or shortcuts, is missing, according to Unhide. Even the Unhide log file, which should show up on the desktop after its routine, is missing. What happened?
