Show Hidden Files!!!

on Sunday, October 4, 2009

You have numerous times selected the Show Hidden Files from the Tools -> Folder Options -> View. But you see no changes taking place.... When you reopen the Folder Options, you are surprised to see that the Do not Show Hidden Files have been shown as the checked value!!!

This may be because of certain viruses...

To overcome this problem, there is something which we can do via Registry Editor or the Regedit.

1. Open Regedit and go to HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL

2. Change the value of the key named CheckedValue from 1 to 2.

Restart the computer and you ll get to see all the hidden files....

Try scanning your PC with an Antivirus (obviously an updated one!)..
