try this  

select view_name from all_views  

The views you are looking for might accidentally be in there.

I logged in as SYSTEM and did a select * from tab. I still could not see the tables. I've tried logging in as sysdba. Can you tell me whats the default password for that at the time of installation?

The O7_Dictonary_Accesbility is False in 9i by default and hence Select Any Table Privs does not give Select on the V$ Views and $ Tables.

I've just installed Oracle 91 on my machine. Earlier I used to see the V$ views but am no longer able to see them. Is there a way I can find out if any objects have been deleted or not and such details ?

Thank you.
