Damaged folder properties in explorer

I was unable to see folder 'AppData' in C:\users\steven with explorer (W7). I tried unselecting 'read only', this didn't help. I then checked 'hidden'. I also applied these actions to c:\users (Stupid I know). Now I can't see c:\users and my favorites have disappeared in IE.

OK solved this myself. Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization, Show hidden files and folders. Could then untick 'hidden' attribute on Folders.
