    Open the Control Panel > Folder Options > View and check "show hidden files and folders".

    Now the directory c:\windows\INF should be viewable.

    You say you have a problem with "USB.inf"

    See if it is present and accounted for in that folder.

    Other USB files that should be in that directory are usbstor.inf, usbprint.inf

    There is a copy of USB.inf in this attachment link, just download and unzip it and copy it to the INF folder if you need it.

    That's odd -- but just open up "Explorer" or "My Computer" and select "Tools > Folder Options > Vew" from there.

    If you still cannot find it there may be a Security policy disabling it.

    If that is the case, run regedit and navigate to the keys shown below:

    User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    Explorer]

    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    Explorer]


    >>> In the right pane, look for the value "NoFolderOptions" as shown below, and right click on it and delete it and then reboot


    Name: NoFolderOptions
    Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value: (0 = show options, 1 = hide options)


    >> To unzip a file that has a .zip extension, just right click on it and select "Extract all" from the right click menu.
