    Default Disappearing files and folders from Windows 7 Documents

    Real problem. A set of folders disappeared from "My Documents", search doesn't find them. Reboot and part of them appear, but incomplete with missing files. I restore from backup and all looks fine. After several minutes, or maybe closing Explorer, they disappear except for the few folders with missing files. I delete these and restore from backup, then reboot.

    Now I have missing files plus the incomplete files which I deleted. If I delete everything and empty recycle bin, the same fragmented files reappear after opening and closing Explorer.

    I have been to MS support and followed instructions re hidden files, root kit scanners, MS Scan, CCleaner and Glary Utilities. Also anti-malware removers and scanners. Nothing shows up, its driving me nuts.

    I even moved a set of the most important files to a Mac, and after a while some of the files went missing there. (I scanned the thumb drive on two different computers--all OK. I need a wizard. Also tried renaming My Documents--no help.

    Win 7 Pro, 64 bit, lots of storage and 8M of ram on Thinkpad T500.
