Does the Folder options setting hold your setting?

Exactly what folders are you looking at and how are you confirming that they contain hidden files?

Thank you for confirming that the problem is not some type if simple user error. It is possible that you may be running an anti-virus program that is preventing saving any changes to the registry or you may have a virus that is not allowing you to change the the registry to allow viewing of hidden files. I found an old thread on TSG that may be of some assistance:
