How To Show Hidden Files and Folders For Windows XP

How To Show Hidden Files and Folders For Windows XP

A few days ago, a client came to me and told me he had problems with its Windows XP. The show hidden files and folders did not work at all. If you select the button "Show hidden files and folders", then press Ok .. changes just disappear when opening the dialog box again. It is likely that some virus attack after the Windows registry is not updated correctly. So here's what I did to restore again. There are many methods to restore the record again. If one method does not work, please try another.

Method 1 :

a. Start

b. Run

c. Type --> Regedit

d. Fine this key --> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1. Now you’re all set to go. Check it in your tools menu if the changes have taken effect.

Method 2 :

a. Start

b. Run

c. Type --> Regedit

d. Fine this key :

e. Look at the “CheckedValue” key. This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.

f. Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.

g. The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally.

Antispyware solution from Search-and-destroy.
I have tried so many different types of scans to help keep my PC running at its best and one thing that I discovered is that they all tend to find the same types of bugs. The main difference between them all is the price that you pay. Recently I discovered Search-and-destroy Antispyware at and I really like it a lot. Antispyware solution from Search-and-destroy is one of the best scans I have ever used and I’m sure that you will be very happy with it as well. Go ahead and give it a try, you will be glad you did!
