Hi Anir

What you need to do is open up your Windows Explorer. Then click on organize in the top left. Then click on options. This will open a new window with 3 tabs "General/View/Search".

Once there click on the view tab.
Here you will see a list.
In the list your looking for two items:
Hidden Files and Folders > enable or disable
and
Hide Protected System Files

You can enable and disable these at any time, just make sure that you do not remove any necessary system files or folders.

I hope this helped.

How To Show Hidden Files And Folders In Windows 7

on Apr 28, 2010 | Computers & Internet

The application preferences file is damaged. Please remove it and re-launch QuarkExpress [297] Where is the preferences file located? (Version 9, Windows 7)


The preferences file will be in the User\AppData folder.
C:\Users\ your user name\AppData\ Local\Quark\QuarkXPress 7 is the location in Vista with version 7 and it should have a similar location in Windows 7.

C:\Users\ your user name\AppData\ Local\Quark\QuarkXPress 9 is likely. (AppData has 3 folders - Local, Local Low and Roaming.)

You should not delete the folder. Instead rename it. Right click on the folder and select Rename. Then name it
old_QuarkXPress 9.

This could be a hidden file. If you click Start and then enter Show hidden folders. Then put the bullet on Show hidden files, folders and drives. Then click Apply and OK.

If moving the AppData location to another folder doesn't solve the problem, check if there is a Preferences file in the Program Files folder (
C:\ Program Files\ Quark\ QuarkXPress 7.x for the old version.) If the new version is built for the 64-bit OS, it might be in the x64 Program File folder. Again rename the file if it is in that directory.

I hope this helps.
