Folder Options

Using XP, SP2, in Explorer, when I select Tools>Folder Options>View and then select "Do not show hidden or system files" >Apply, the selection reverts to "Do not show hidden files and folders". If I use the selective help on "Do not show hidden or system files" I get an error message, "Cannot find update.hlp file. ....."

Has anyone got a solution/explanation for this?

If you mean in 'My Documents' - I don't have that option under 'view.' Just - Do not show hidden files and folders or; Show hidden files and folders.

Are you up-to-date with Windows updates?

Ah! very interesting. I did wonder what the difference was between "Do not show hidden or system files" and "Do not show hidden files and folders". Yes I do have all of the latest windows updates. It would seem that the latter is a redundant option.

Thanks a lot, Wazzec
