My Documents says 2 hidden items

The display correctly shows 51 items as icons, but at the foot of the screen it says 51 objects (plus 2 hidden).
Can someone explain what the hidden objects could be and how to make them show up?

Tools- Folder Options - cruise to tabs
show all files

Hidden files can often be system related and sometimes can be malware.

To see them click view folder options and tick the "Show hidden files option" in advanced.

Be aware that you will now be able to see all your system files. Don't delete anything, and if you are confident the files are safe, then return the settings to "Hide" the files.

Ah! Thanks jack and crosstrainer, all is revealed! Now I see another 2 faint icons which are simply Radio 4 icons and they seem harmless enough. Many thanks for sorting that out for me.
