Question about Operating Systems
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
