Can't unhide hidden files in folder
i am not able to unhide my hidden files on my computer. i tried even changing registry entry for local machine to 1(un-hide), but it gets changed back to 2 once i save it.
Also if i try to use attrib -h command from command prompt. it says 'not resetting file'
i've AVG internet secuity 2011 and when i did a full computer scan it found some 10 spyware programs in my computer it removed all of them but it i can'
t see my hidden files.
Can somebody suggest as what it could be? and what can i do get rid of it.
i am running winxp.

make sure your logged in as admin.
Open up My Computer, so it shows your C: Drive and whatever else, go to the menu bar at the top of the window, and select Tools, then go to folder options, click on the View Tab, Then find the Hidden Files and Folders Section and make sure Show Hidden Files and Folders is selected.
Click on Apply, then OK, then close the windows, and it should show up, they'll appear to be faded looking folders, indicating they're set for hidden, but you can select them and open them, or if their actual files, open/use them.
The directions I posted above are for Windows 7, but should be a similar set of steps for Windows XP from what I remember.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
