  1. This is an upgrade to my post of April 09, 2017, by Earlyboomer. I had checked my document folder and download folder and they were both "this folder is empty". I went through my PC looking everywhere I could and no files. Then about 4 days later I booted up my PC in the morning and my Icons were back, I quickly checked my document and download folders and everything was back in them also. I don't know what to make of this except it was like winning a minor lottery. I got a second chance to do some backing up now. I can't explain what happed but I'll take it. I do check for Malware, because I have had attempts by malware hackers to lock up my PC but I got around that, but I was still concerned that they still might have got me. I also checked my hard drive for errors, there were none. I upgraded from windows 7 to !0, and I am still learning the differences. I have CC Cleaner, System Mechanic, and Malwarebytes. I do remember when I was booting up one day that I saw a notice pop up in the lower right corner of the screen, there always seems to be something there, so I didn't look quick enough, but I think it was from Malwarebytes stating it did something. You don't get a second chance to read these pop ups, they are quick, but It makes me think Malwarebytes could have eliminated the problem. This was a good reminder, like the moderators say, we need to be prepared for anything and everything with a PC. Thanks for the suggestions.
  2. From a morning reboot I found half of my Icons and half of the Start menu was gone, and that is not the worst part. Later I found that all of the files in my Download folder and my Documents folder were gone. The document folder had a lot of files. All my pictures disappeared too, but I have them backed up. I have been intending to use another hard drive for document storage, pictures etc., but didn't get to it. (I will from now on!) I use Cc Cleaner so I upgraded to CC Cleaner professional. Now I see that there is another upgrade to another CC Cleaner version and I see that it has a restore files ability, so is there a possibility that it might help me in my case. I have already checked as well as I know how and the folders seem to be empty.
