  1. I can't seem to view hidden files, and I tried going through regedit to change the value in SHowall:checkedvalue to 1 but it keeps reseting to 0 and won't let me create another.
    I scanned my pc several times with Norton anti virus but it can't detect anything.

    Would appreciate any help at all.
    Thanks in advance.

    Note I haven't read the log

    1. Click Start -> Run
    2. Type regedit and click Ok.
    3. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL
    4. Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.
    5. Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.
    6. The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally
    7. Also change in NOHIDDEN change value to 1
    8. In SHOWALL change value to 0
    9. Re-check the folder options
    10. now change the values to the same
    NOHIDDEN to 2
    SHOWALL to 1

    Strange, but works.
