Please help. This just happened where my several folders and files from my desktop are not showing up. When I tried to copy a program back to my desktop, it asked me if I wanted to replace it, meaning it was already there, yet I cannot see it. (please see my uploaded photo) I have lost all my favorite links too, or did I? I'm wondering if everything is just in 'hidden' mode or something. The link to majorgeeks was gone from my favorites along with all the others and I had to google it to find this place again. I am operating Windows XP. I was looking into the properties of a file folder and can't remember what I was looking at or what I did, just before everything disappeared. When I tried to move a program to my desktop, it asked me if I wanted to replace it, so everything must still be there, right? Please help me bring it all back. I have folders of tons of work (see second screen shot) which shows them being there, but for some reason they are naked to my eyes.
