When ever i try to open hiden file i have first i have to mark show hiden file from folder options, but it doesnt eccespt that changed and i can see hiden files.

actually when i go back to folder option still that option of show hiden files is not marked dispite i try to mark it apply and ok. but still it goes on that way that is it was.

is there any way that i can fix this problem i believe that it is a kind of virus that has changed the registry of my Laptop.

Lets see if it enables hidden files

Start >> run >> regedit

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\

Setting the Hidden setting to 1 shows hidden files, setting it to 0 does not show hidden files

This will show hidden or system files, but not files that are both hidden and system.

Hello ....

IMPORTANT ************************

FIRST backup your registry .... using ERUNT

http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/

_________________________________________________________________

Now

Go to Start >> RUn >> regedit >> navigate to ...

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.

Hope this solves your problem
