  1. Windows folder is missing from Windows (C:)


    For some reason my entire Windows Folder - the Windows folder inside "Windows (C) -- went missing tonight.

    In File Explorer, clicking on Windows (C) only shows the following:
    AMD
    inetpub
    PerfLogs
    Program Files
    Program Files (x86)
    SWSetup
    Users

    I'm on a relatively new (7 months old) computer -- HP Laptop -- and running Windows 10. I tried rebooting hoping it would be restored during the process, but it was not. Restarting took a long time to boot up and for several seconds I had a blank blue screen, but it did eventually start and my desktop looks fine. I just can't find my Windows folder. I had a system restore point but it's telling me there is not one. Can anyone help?

  2. Upgrade to 6.8 causes Text Message Editor error

    Hi,

    I think that MFC71ENU.DLL file is missing from your C:\WINDOWS\system32\ folder. Also SearchEngine.dll file from C:\Program Files\Nokia\Nokia PC Suite 6\ folder is missing.

    Can you find those files?
