Windows Folder Disappears

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone had this happen or heard of this:

I have Windows XP. I just did a bunch of the latest windows updates. Most of them were security patches.

Now if I open Windows Explorer, I can't see the folder that contains any of the au3 files. But the shortcut to them still works.

So for example, I had all my au3 files in a subfolder called scripts. When I open Windows Explorer, the subfolder scripts was missing. So I created a new subfolder called ydsc (just typed anything in for testing purposes) and I moved all the au3 files to this new subfolder. Then I opened a new Windows Explorer.

Now scripts shows, but ydsc doesn't.

I tried this a few times. Any subfolder I created that I put those au3 files in disappeared. And once I removed them, it showed up again.

I assume this is related to the security updates I installed because this never happened before.

Has anyone seen this odd behavior and do you know how to stop this from happening?

Thanks, Susie

Never mind...I think it was a remnant of the virus we had (which is why I updated Windows in the first place).

Found this post on another thread that fixed it:

No, never seen anything like it, I'm a little curious.

"So I created a new subfolder called ydsc (just typed anything in for testing purposes) and I moved all the au3 files to this new subfolder"

What method did you use to move these invisible scripts?
