Default Win explorer does not display any contents

Hi fellow posters,

I have Win 98 SE and all of a sudden every time I start
the file explorer I can see just the hard drive icon but
no file names nor folder names listed. Is this a common
fault that someone knows about or does anyone have an
answer for me please. I need help before I go crazy trying
to work this problem out... I have alreday spent a few
hours trying to get it to display the contents. Oh, in DOS
it also displays blank unless you know the folder names..
eg: if you type in CD\Windows it will go into the windows
directory but a simple dir displays a blank and not the
directory structure or file names??? HEEEELLLPPPPP....

Thanks guys but I finally worked it out. I am sure I
didn't attribute all my directories to be hidden and
system only but when I unchecked the hidden and system
attribs everthing is back and normal again. Some gremlin.
