I installed Windows updates last night, and after the updates installed, my music, pictures, and several desktop icons disappeared. At first, whenever I tried to open the Control Panel, this message popped up:
The remote procedure call failed and did not execute.
When I tried to open anything else, the same message popped up, but without the numbers and letters over "The remote procedure call failed and did not execute." I ran sfc /scannow, which fixed this problem. I can now open programs, but my music and pictures were not restored.
I ran several malware scans, and my system is clean. I also tried to do a system restore, but there are no restore points available. Is there any way to restore the missing files?
