Hello, I recently had a problem on my computer that I was not sure how it's handled. When my computer crashed asking that the disks are full, I deleted large files to see what the problem was coming from. When I restarted my computer, my computer had a automatic update and changed everything on my desktop. My screen's background disappeared, my files were hidden, and my computer still says the same problem. Everything installed is still there, but I cannot access the files of the program. What's going on?

In Windows Explorer select Folder Options form the Tools menu then click n the View tab. Tick to show hidden files and folders and untick hide protected system files. Click Apply and OK then see if your files are showing. If not post back which folders you think you can't see - they can be made to show up but the names would be useful.
