Tried to change file permission and now all my files have been hidden?

hi there, earlier i tried to change the permissions for one of the admin users on my computer. problem is when i tried to remove the rights for the other admin to see my personal files, it would seem that both of the admin users personal files have been completely hiden including shortcuts to programs like games, media players ect... i took a look at the permission menu again but it seem we both still have rights to view all the folders and files on the computer.

please help i have no idea what on earth i've done or how i've managed to do this.

Thanks very much!
