Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Have a look here: Libraries - Restore Default

If that doesn't work, try this: Libraries - Hidden and Empty Fix

You could try a system restore to a point before the fault occurred, but as you've only had this computer a short time I think you should get it checked out while it's under warranty.

Contact the manufacturer or reseller for advice.
