A friend has a problem with her Windows 7 computer. Her user folder has disappeared from C:\Users. She can login, all files are there, but the folder is not visible inside the Users folder.
A week ago she had troubles logging in. Her profile was replaced with a temporary one. I've used regedit to restore the profile, and she can login again and everything worked. Except that her User folder stayed hidden, but I didn't notice this last week.
Today she let me know that Windows Photo Gallery had lost all photos. It turned out that no pictures were lost, but Photo Gallery couldn't use the pictures folder anymore, because it was hidden. It is not hidden when I open Explorer, and I can open the folder, double click any image and then browse the pictures using Photo Gallery. Except when I open Photo Gallery none of the pictures from the Pictures folder are visible in it.
How can I make her user folder visible again, making Photo Gallery work again?
