    Hi

    Should I show the hidden files when I am scanning my computer with Spybot S&D, Adaware, and my AVG Anti-virus. I also use a couple of the on-line virus scanners (Panda,Housecall)

    Thx in advance

    Ebabling "Show Hidden files" has no effect whatever on scans by Spybot or any other utility. It's strictley for your convenience when viewing.
