Making The Hidden Files Visible/Invisible If Folder Option isn’t working

Windows Xp sometimes gets affected by a worm due to which you cant see hidden files even though you cange the option in Folder option menu. Well heres a step to do so:

1> Go to start menu, select run then type regedit and press enter.

2> Browse to the following key :-

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\

3> Change the Setting of Hidden to 1 in order to show hidden files and setting it to 0 does not show hidden files.

If the above doesnt help then try the below:

1> Go to start menu, select run then type regedit and press enter.

2> Browse to the following key :-
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advan ced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL

3> Now right click on,and delete the value “CheckedValue” in the right hand window.

4> Create a new “DWORD Value” called exactly CheckedValue in the right hand window.

5> Double click on CheckedValue and then type in the box ‘Edit DWORD Value’ ,set the ‘Value data:’ to 1.
