Hyper-V -No Virtual Machines were found on this server.

Server 2008 Enterprise
All of a sudden my vm disappeared from the Hyper-V manager.  I am (was) running Trend Micro Office Scan on the Server which I've read has caused problems.
In any event, I removed the anti-virus, restarted the Hyper-V manager as well as the physical server but the Hyper-V Manager still says no virtual servers exist?  
I can see the virtual server files, but I can't seem to get them to load.
Any help is appreciated.

if you didn't didn't use snaps you can simply re add the VM's by creating a new Virtual machine and using the existing disk. If you did you snaps you will need to restore the initial store on the server. Make sure you setup your antivirus exclusions for hyper-v. This is known to cause this issue but you are aware of that now.

That was exactly what I needed.  I didn't realize I could do that.  I went through the process and it worked.
Thank you.
