Acer 230/280 notebook permanently hidden files?

\015 Hi, I'm not a Notebook/Xp wiz, so excuse me if the problem seems trivial or insignificant in any way.. It's frustrating when you know it's meant to work one way and does'nt!\015\012\015\012I cant get my windows to stay on the option of "show hidden files" in my view settings in windows. I go into the settings, put the dot in the circle, click apply, and exit but hidden files, which ordinarily in this state show as faded icons are still not there, I go back into the settings and the dot is magically in the "do not show hidden files"! \015\012\015\012I have just done a complete format and reinstall of windows XP home edition. It is now the second time I am going to attempt a format and reinstall, i found it was when I installed my drivers from my flash drive that the problem came back into effect, before which (after the format) I could see hidden files. Somewhere between opening and installing from my flash drive the problem came back! Any Idea on this would be greatly appreciated!\015

Answers :

Hello,
ok that seems like a strange problem, do you have any kind of antivirus software? that protects the system settings to getting changed?

You can also change the settings in regedit
start->run input "regedit" enter.->
go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\Advanced\\Folder\\Hidden\\SHOWALL
\015\012DELETE the value CheckedValue in the right window. (Its type should be REG_SZ and data should be 2.)
\015\012Now create a new DWORD value called CheckedValue (same as above, except\015\012that the type is REG_DWORD). Modify the value data to 1 (0x00000001).
\015\012This should let you change the "Hidden Files and Folders" option.

get back to me if this doesent work.
