    If the key doesn’t exist (it doesn’t always) you need to create it.

    It should be a Hex DWORD, value of 0 keeps files hidden, value of 1 displays them.

    for an easier way, just go to “tools -> folder options” from any explorer window, and go to the “View” tab in the pop-up window, scroll down a bit and switch to “show hidden files” and then scroll some more and un-check “Hide system protected files”
