Files not showing up in "Libraries" - Hidden count?

In Windows 7, I have a user who typically accesses his "My Documents" folder from the "Libraries" link.  He doesn't understand what the Win7 Libraries is (not sure I fully understand either), and he just thought that it was a shortcut to his My Documents (as well as other folders).  He started noticing that when navigating to his My Documents via the Libraries link, some files weren't showing up (specifically a couple of power point files).  When I asked him to browse directly to his My Documents starting from the C: drive and not use the Libraries link, he could see all the files.  When I compared two powerpoint file property screens (with one file that could be seen in libraries and one that could not) I noticed there was a field called "Hidden Count".  The file that could not be seen had a value of 1 and the file that could be seen had a value of 0.  Is this "Hidden Count" option related to the files not showing up in Libraries?  Other than telling this user not to navigate to his my docs with the libraries link, how can I find out the problem here and have libraries show all files?  How do I change the "Hidden Count" value...assuming that is part of the problem?

Thanks for any help.

Hidden Count indicates the number of slides that have been marked as "Hidden" (Right Click thumbnail > Hide Slide) so that they do not normally show in the slide show. In the thumnails they will show with a diagonal line through the number.

Note it is the actual number of hidden slides 0 and 1 do not indicate true or false as in some other properties.

I don't think it should have any effect on the visibility in Documents
