I'm not sure that I understand what you did. Go to Control Panel>Folder Options>View tab and select "Show hidden files, folders and drives" and you might deselect "Hide Protected Operating System Files", as I have done.

Welcome,

In the future to avoid problems, before making any changes that you are not familiar with make a system restore point. In the event of a problem you can always restore. In addition, you have the capablity of making an image of the entire hard drive (system image) make one now and update once a month. In the event of a future problem you can always restore. Keep the system image on a external hard drive.
