    Hi, guys.

    After my pc has been infected by the "bagle prague" (hldrrr/wintems/flec006/srosa) i got cleaned by a software called Regrun. But the malwares have left some problems on my pc. The main problem is : In Control Panel / Folder option / View, i can´t find the options related to "show hidden files". In this forum there is a solution already posted,but it didn´t solve my problem.
    The member says to go to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden]
    and change the value into "group" My problem is : I do not have this last folder in the registry line ("hidden").
    I mean, there is [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder] and in this folder ("folder") there´s no "hidden" folder. So I can´t change the value of "hidden" ´cause there´s no "hidden". Help me please, thanks.
