C:/Program and C:/Program(86) - Not Showing

OS Win 7-64 SP1 Home Premium updated automatically (last one 30/5/13).

Subject folders are not showing. I have an HP laptop with Win7 OS (again w/auto updates) where these folders do show up.

Advice on how to rectify appreciated.

Problems description too short. Say folders don't show, then do. Which is it? Different computer?

Trying being a bit more descriptive about the problem....how about including a screen capture image to illustrate the problem.

If your programs are still working then I would go to folder options and click on restore defaults. Maybe they got hidden somehow>?

Go to the Start Orb and type in Folder Options. Tick on Folder Options and check this.

Program files are not meant to be hidden.

I'm thinking this is what the OP is looking for.
