    I just recently updated my windows XP to SP3. My problem is to show hidden files. I have tried many times using windows explorer, select Tools then Folders Option then select View tap click shows hidden files. Every time it fail to show hidden file. When I check again the View tap I discover that it has set back to Do not show hidden files. It seems to me that windows do not allow me to set this. For your information this PC is my own PC and i share it with my housemates so i am the administrator of the PC. Besides that i have installed AVG antivirus program.
    :)Pls help

    Have you also did a virus scan on your computer. Virus might be preventing to view the hidden folders on the computer.
