    Opening an administrative command window and typing and enter after:
    SFC /scannow
    might help.

    I ran that scan and it said I had no "integrity" problems. Thanks!
    I tried a system restore twice and it kept saying it could not complete because of a file problem. It suggested truning off virus protection and i did and still would not complete.
    If I just put the folders back one by one is it just a matter of creating a new folder or do I need to connect it somehow to something? Thanks!

    I am not sure about how they would interact with the system, so maybe someone else would know a better way.

    I was looking and after you create the public folder, right click on it and select restore previous versions. I am not sure what this will do exactly, and do not know if it will effect any other folders. But maybe something to try until someone else comes along.

    -----------------------
    I tried this and it works, IF you have something to restore from.
