In windows98 explorer, you can see your files in different views, large icons, small icons, list or detailed list. For 1 week, I can't see any of my files when I'm in detailed list view.
I can see all of them in all the other views and I didn't lose any data.
What can I do?

Petit,
Try
start
run
type in "sfc"
scan for altered files.

That is a start.

Delete the ShellconCache in the c:\windows directory and reboot.

It will rebuild the icons for you.

make sure you have SHOW ALL FILES checked in the following location:

doubleclick My Computer, click VIEW, FOLDER OPTIONS, then click the VIEW tab

check SHOW ALL FILES, and uncheck any other boxes that are checked, click APPLY, OK, and restart your computer

let us know if this helps!

also, let us know what version of Internet Explorer you have - if you don't know how to tell what version you have, start Internet Explorer, click HELP, about Internet Explorer, and tell us the Version No.
