Xp sp2 not showing hidden files

hi guys,
i have problems with my windows… i am using win xp sp2
now what has happened …i am not able to c hidden files …
whenever i am tring to apply setting to option “shoe hidden files”
it does not apply … it gives no errors aslo …
any one knows the solution ???

Can you show a screen shot?

run a couple of updated virus scans from safe mode

I have been working on a computer that had 3 virii and a ton of trojans, my space myspaceim were probably involved

same problem after killing virii, repair xp did not fix

after applying setting …

here is the solution ,

lick Start/Run,type regedit then press Ok
Navigate to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advan ced\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.

works for me :):cop:

Sorry i didn’t get back to you. Glad you got it fixed.
