Hello! This is my first post in a while, so I'll head straight to the point:
Yesterday everything was fine, today everything is not fine.

My music is all gone! Yesterday, it was there and I was able to listen to it as much as I please but today when I ran iTunes and selected a song to play, it came up with the 'unable to locate' error message, when I tried manually navigating to it there was nothing there: the folder is there and when I right click and check properties it says that there is a total of 59.7gb in my root music folder but inside each individual folder there is absolutely nothing. I have my computer set to show hidden files and I've tried running a program called unhider but both have shown no positive effects.
Can anybody lend me a hand?
(and/or redirect my thread to a more appropriate board)
Cheers,

Luka

If it matters, I just replaced my HD5770 with a HD6850 this morning but that might just be a coincidence.

#Edit;
I've also attempted a system restore (to no objective success)

My first suspicion is you have picked up some kind of malware. Please go to the Virus, Spyware, Malware Removal forum, read the first post and follow instructions.

The reason I say this is I recently fixed a computer with malware that had set the hidden attribute for every file on the computer so you couldn't see anything, even when I had show hidden files setup.

Come back here once you get a clean bill of health if you still have problems.
