Hello, I have what appears to be an odd issue, and I can't find
reference to it on the web anywhere.
Under the Public folder on my Vista machine, I can see the folders
Public Downloads, Public Music etc. BUT Public Documents is missing.
If I use the cmd shell, I get the same effect:
Directory of C:\Users\Public
11/05/2008 16:54 <DIR> .
11/05/2008 16:54 <DIR> ..
13/04/2008 08:37 <DIR> Downloads
11/05/2008 16:54 3,403,458 Library.xml
11/05/2008 17:13 <DIR> Music
15/02/2008 18:16 <DIR> Perl
12/02/2008 19:15 <DIR> Pictures
26/04/2008 08:25 <DIR> Recorded TV
05/04/2008 11:11 <DIR> Videos

How can I unhide it?
Unchecking "hide" in the folder propertied of the documents folder does
not work - it is greyed out.
This used to all work just fine, but then the folder suddenly took on
this hidden nature.
This is a clean vista install, not an upgrade.
Any help most appreciated.
