My htdocs folder is missing - can't create new?! help!

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

that is really the only thing i can think of for a case like this. perhaps a keyword virus built to attack anything that is with the name of htdocs? it would seem silly though for it to not delete it rather than just make it invisible. Do you have this same issue on another computer at all?

The path c:\xampp\htdocs does not exist or it is not a folder.

well i guess its good to know what you are dealin with. Format that HD off because I wouldnt want to use it for my server just because AV doesnt catch everything all the time. Keep us updated and we'll help ya out.
