Windows 7 Libraries

The folders in my (Windows 7) libraries all disappeared.  I had to check "show hidden files" to get them to show up, even though they are not hidden.  From reading other discussions, it seems to be an issue created by McAfee.  I do NOT want to mess with the registry - I shouldn't have to.  How can I let the company know that I want the problem fixed?

Re: Windows 7 Libraries

Hello Laurieb,

Functions in the 2011 McAfee VirusScan could cause these four default Libraries to be hidden, making it difficult to find files collected into these Libraries. The Libraries do exist, but they have a ‘hidden’ attribute which prevents them from being displayed in Windows Explorer. Please be informed that the patch for this issue has been already released and it would eventually reach your system depending upon the location ,
