Question about Acer TravelMate 2303LCi Notebook
Hi, I'm not a Notebook/Xp wiz, so excuse me if the problem seems trivial or insignificant in any way.. It's frustrating when you know it's meant to work one way and does'nt!
I cant get my windows to stay on the option of "show hidden files" in my view settings in windows. I go into the settings, put the dot in the circle, click apply, and exit but hidden files, which ordinarily in this state show as faded icons are still not there, I go back into the settings and the dot is magically in the "do not show hidden files"!
I have just done a complete format and reinstall of windows XP home edition. It is now the second time I am going to attempt a format and reinstall, i found it was when I installed my drivers from my flash drive that the problem came back into effect, before which (after the format) I could see hidden files. Somewhere between opening and installing from my flash drive the problem came back! Any Idea on this would be greatly appreciated!
ok that seems like a strange problem, do you have any kind of antivirus software? that protects the system settings to getting changed?
You can also change the settings in regedit
start->run input "regedit" enter.->
DELETE the value CheckedValue in the right window. (Its type should be REG_SZ and data should be 2.)
Now create a new DWORD value called CheckedValue (same as above, except that the type is REG_DWORD). Modify the value data to 1 (0x00000001).
This should let you change the "Hidden Files and Folders" option.
get back to me if this doesent work.
