User account missing

Hi all I use windows 7. I had the problem of not being able to view images (you do not have sufficient .......) I now have to recover a drawing but instead of seeing users in explorer it just says my name. Before that I would find the file I wanted under users, however I can not find the 'users' account anywhere on my computer. Can anyone assist

Thank you

Hello and welcome Steve mate try clicking on Computer > right click on the drive > it will drop down a list > right click on Users > Open - it will open out to whoever is on there or should do.

Right click on them and Open see pic this is on my 8 machine but it is similar.

System Restore to a point before this happened.

Run a full scan with Malwarebytes
followed by SFC /SCANNOW Command

Missing User Account Pictures
When I manage user accounts in a standard account, there are no pictures for any of the accounts. This doesn't occur when managing accounts from the administrator account. Can anyone confirm if they also have this issue? Again, this is by managing accounts through a standard account.
