Folder has Sub-Folders and Files but shows up empty.

lol, i got no idea what's wrong with it. located in my documents/downloads I open the folder and it comes up empty. If I rename it to some other name, its contents show up actually, strange thing. Also, if I open the folder the long way, that is c\users\myuser\my documents\downloads it opens fine, even i don't change the folder name, any ideas? I think the error is in the registry, used Revo Uninstaller to uninstall facemoods and it messed up the registry to a state that pc became useless, had to backup registry, but seems it never recovered from it lol.

Would be easy if you had a backup from before the problem. DO you have the OS dvd to do a repair install?

Sounds like a situation for a Repair Install.
