need help with "show hidden files..."

When I tried to change to "show hidden files and folders" in the "view" tab under " folder options" menu, nothing happens, i.e., hidden files and folders are not shown. When I suspiciously checked it again, it turns out to be set back to "do not show hidden files and folders", no matter how many times I change it back. So, please, all suugestions are welcome on how to fix this annoying problem. Thanks!

Did you click 'Apply'?

If not above..
A couple of methods
Method 1:
Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box.
Go to this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.

Also it could posssibly be a virus or result of previous infection.

You must be using 98 or ME. As In XP it is under Tools
