Cannot change to "show hidden files and folders"

  ykzn 02:52 04 May 2009

Hi all!

I cannot change the setting to "show hidden files and folders" under folder options.

I have already run a virus scan and found several viruses and has been neutralized.

I also run spybot with updated definitions but it does not show any threats.

But I still cannot change it.

Please, all advices are welcome.

Run a system file check, which OS are you using if you don't know how to do it.

I am using Windows XP with Service Pack 3. So, how do I check system file?

Go To Start> Run> type sfc /scannow and hit Enter.
You will need your XP CD.
Watch the space between sfc and /

Ignore the above I hope and go to this wikianswers page.

I had it and it worked immediately for me...

As for whether I was infected or not (or you)
I did have my first virus 2 months ago. But the damn AV picked it up and then didnt quarantine it (my fault I was on "Prompt only" default stupid setting)
Free AV program (forget which one it was, PC AntiVirus?) wouldnt fix it so I tried other free progs. Some on 30 days (useless). Others missed it but falsly reported other infections.

Anyway, long and short, now on Avira AV. Totally free. Constant free updates. Seems to work very well. Try it instead of your one.
