Question: Help, I can’t see Hidden files/folders in my computer. I already enable the option “Show hidden files/folders” in “Tools -> Folder Options”, but its automatically disabled again.
Go to your Start menu, click on Run and open up your Registry Editor by typing “regedit” without the quotes and pressing OK.
Once there go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL
Delete the value CheckedValue. (Its type should be REG_SZ and data should be 0 or 1.)
Create a new DWORD value called CheckedValue (same as above, except that the type is REG_DWORD) by right clicking on the right pane->New->DWORD Value. Modify the value data to 1 (0x00000001). Solution 2:
Open regedit, same as above then goto: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
In right-side pane, change value of “Hidden” to as following:
1 – To show hidden file
2 – To not show hidden files
If the solutions given doesn’t work, then probably you have a virus in your computer, scan your computer with an anti-virus software.
