    Docs and Settings GONE! (Home Premium)

    Edit:

    OK, I found it... they did it to me on purpose!

    Ain't got the foggiest what the heck the point was... they must've been bored or depressed.

    Anyway, I got my answer.

    Thanks, y'all.

    I didn't do ANYTHING!

    But when I run explorer.exe, "Documents and Settings" doesn't even show up.

    If I look via "Total Commander", it shows up with s shortcut symbol as an icon.

    Attributes are showing as hidden/system in Total Commander.

    I didn't even look at it before -- I didn't expect to see this!

    Is it supposed to be this way? Why wouldn't it show in explorer? And I tried changing the attributes, but couldn't.

    ???

    And then, there's both "Program Files" and a new one "ProgramData".

    ?

    Look for "Users"!

    By the way you will also NOT find My Documents or My Pictures and etc., the "My" has been dropped.

    Guys:

    Yea thanks. Joe, I ordered a book, but it ain't here yet, and I was just wondering how I'd managed to screw things up so quickly!

    But I haven't evidently, so all is right in my world, for now.

    Thanks,
    Chuck
