I have fixed the problem, though not the cause.
After wasting a lot of time doing different things, I finally, for some
strange reason, decided to look at the VIews function while staring at my
ever-shrinking list of files. I cannot recall the exact sequence, but
basically I just messed around with the various options, and then went back
to List and all of a sudden, the files began to come back into view.
Yes, fans, Vista is truly weird.
Hope this works for others out there in the land of the confused.
