Hi, I have gone into folder options and checked show hidden files and folders and unchecked hide pretected operating system files and on the drive letter level and tried it further into the folder structure yet they never show up in explorer and whenever I go back into view folder options the do not show hidden files and folder options is checked instead of the show hidden files and folder which I had selected and applyied. What else can keep you from seeing these folders? Thanks /Craig

Click Start/Run,type regedit then press Ok
Navigate to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL

Now right click on,and delete the value "CheckedValue" in the right hand window.

Now create a new "DWORD Value" called exactly CheckedValue in the right hand window.
Double click on CheckedValue.
In the opening 'Edit DWORD Value' box,set the 'Value data:' to 1

Press Ok,exit regedit,restart your pc.
