    Hi there,

    I seem to be having a host of problems on my computer. The major ones I've noticed are:

    1. Cannot view hidden folders, despite changing Folder Options settings repeatedly
    -- "Apply" has no effect when I click on it, nor does "OK"
    -- Automatically reverts back to "Do not show hidden files and folders"

    2. On startup, I receive the error message that Windows cannot find the file "C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\conime.exe"

    3. When I try to access Regit in my Windows folder, I receive an error message that Windows cannot find the file "C:\WINDOWS\regedit.exe"


    Any help of fixing these problems would be appreciated! Thank you!
