  1. I made a really stupid mistake, i accidentally caused my Program Files folder to dissapear by hiding it. i was trying to reveal hidden files in the folder but instead i hid the folder itself. Now im having a hard time making it reappear again, i'd appreciate any suggestions anyone can offer.

    Edit: i was able to make the folder reappear again along with the rest of hidden objects, however now all the previously hidden files and folders have a faded look to them, they are not as brightly displayed as the rest, what i'd like to know is how to restore them back to a normal look.

    Right click the hidden folder, select properties, and then uncheck the HIDDEN button.
