It's probably hidden from you. From memory, so it might be a little off, here's an attempt at helping you turn off hiding files:
Control Panel (if you can't find folder options, open up your C: and click view, folder options)
Click the view tab
Uncheck the check mark next to "hide the entire system from me, because I am incapable of knowing as much as you bill, you ass". Actually it might say: "Hide system and configure files" or something similar to that.
Then say "Ok" and now have a peek.
