    Need help finding Programs Files

    Today I went to My Computer and then to drive C and cannot find
    C:\Program Files. From the Start menu I can open Programs but my news
    reader (Agent program) is not shown?

    I ran two different malware scans to see if a virus or other malware
    was the cause, but nothing found.


    I am running Win XP SP3. I have run Search and my C:Program
    Files\Agent appears there - so apparently the program has not been
    deleted.

    Can some kind soul offer a suggestion for restoring C:\Program Files?

    And your version and edition of Windows is what? 32- or 64-bit?

    Maybe it was a drive-by malware. Do you let your kids use your
    computer? Maybe one of them changed the hidden or system file attribute
    (to enable it) on lots of files and folders and then deleted itself so a
    later scan would not find it.

    Open a command prompt (cmd.exe) and enter the following commands:

    c:
    cd \
    dir "program files"

    Does the 'dir' command still not show the folder (and its subfolders and
    files)? If not, enter:

    attrib.exe "program files"

    Is the hidden or system attribute set (is "H" or "S" shown)?

    Search again, than right-click on the file and select "open containing
    folder". The adress bar should tell you exactly the folder where the
    program is located. Is it still "Program files" ?

    Also, simply click on the found executable to start the program. Does it
    start ? If not the program itself might be faulty.

    Another thing to check: Select, from the Start menu, the program,
    right-click and select "properties". Does the "target:" box show the same
    path as where your search showed it to be ?

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks Vanguard and Rudy - nothing seemed to work so I went back a few
    days and did a system restore. It brought back Program Files. Perhaps
    ne of the disk cleaners I run was responsible i.e., CCleaner or
    Advanced System Care?
