Hi, to see your hidden files in winXPsp2, go to regedit, find:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL    and there value "CheckedValue = 0"   If there is "0", change it to "1"
This kind of problem normally comes after your PC was infected by trojans, mal.,addw., etc. Even after removing (I'm using Spyware Doctor, one of the best & NOD32 antivirus) of infection some times this reg value still staying in the incorrect "0" so just change it.

Ok did you click on tool's folder options and the select view hidden or system files, If you did then please verify according to djnick989's suggestions,

Also verify that the virus is totally out, sometimes not the entire thing is removed cause new variants of the same virus come out daily, so the entire thing might not have been removed. What you can do is try another antivirus like AVG FREE or you can restore to a previous date before you had the virus, where you were able to view the files

Win 7 - open the drive on the computer, click the "organize" drop down menu on the left - go to "folder and search options" - select the second tab (view) - select "show hidden files, folder, and drives" - Hit apply then ok - all of your files should be visible now - select all files by hitting "CTRl" + "A" - right click on one of the files and select properties - uncheck hidden - when/if another window opens select the best option for you - now all your folders should be visible again - you can repeat the first few steps to make your hidden files invisible again if you wish.

My Psp still have it's contents but when i connect it to my PC and oepn it as a Removable Disk. There appears nothing. When i explore and go to TOOLS - Folder Options - Show all Hidden Files. There only...


Maybe the drive is partitioned into 2 or 3 partitions and only one is visible.
Try going into START -CONTROL PANEL - ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS - STORAGE and see what drives show up there. You may be able to assign a hidden drive a letter from there and it will be visible. NB Watch out though because changing the drive permanently may mean it wont work in the PSPwhen you put it back.

Hidden files are not showing


Hi there.
It sounds like you have a virus on your machine, apart from not being able to view hidden files and folders is there anything else thats going wrong with the PC at all?
for example on start-up do you get any strange error messages or has the recycle bin name been changed?

When clicking on the star, the history shows up but..


My Computer > C:\ (System Volume, Boot Volume, Windows) > The Documents and Settings folder > User Name Folder > Local Settings Folder > History.


If the Local Settings Folder is not visible in the UserName Folder you have to enable show hidden files:

While at the folder goto Menu at top Tools > Folder Options > View > Select the radio button for "Show Hidden Files"

If the user is using Firefox, then may have already selected not to save the browsing history, without advanced tools this information is not accessible.

If the user is using Internet Explorer, History will display unless they have selected to save the files for a period of "0" days, newer versions may even have the ability to not save at all.

Check the History folder to be certain.

Good luck.
