I don't know what happened. I recently tried to download and install Windows 7 SP 1.
I opened Windows Explorer and every file there is .pdb. The other drivers on the computer are all fine. The computer works fine I just can not see any of the default folders in the tree for C drive. This is the boot drive.
I would be most grateful if someone could tell me how to get the Windows Explorer back to normal. I have tried and tried to reset it. I remains the same.
thank you
I can not even show a screen shot because I can find only these .pdb files. There are no files I recognize

Well, PDB files are debug files, so maybe this could be something to do with a version of Visual Studio or something? + never say a screen shot wont help, the mods here can do a lot more with a screen shot.

You already have an open topic here and are receiving assistance. Please do not start new threads or duplicate topics as this causes confusion and makes it more difficult to get the help you need to resolve your issues when asking for and receiving assistance elsewhere. Further, it necessitates staff spending time with housecleaning to remove or close those duplicate postings...time which could have been provided to others needing assistance.

Please continue in your other topic. To avoid confusion this thread is closed.
