Show Hidden Files and Folders Missing

If  your  System  is infected with this worm then it will not allow you to view the Hidden files. To enable this option follow the steps.

You can resolve the issue by doing the following tweak to the registry…

Back up your registry before doing any changes.

1) Go to Run -> type regedit

2) Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\Explorer\
Advanced\Folder\Hidden

2) now you can see 2 keys NOHIDDEN and SHOWALL here (see picture below).

3) Now Click on NOHIDDEN and then doble click Checked Value  and set value data as 0.

4) Now Click on SHOWALL and then doble click Checked Value and set value data as 1.

Now  try to select show hidden files and folders. This should show your hidden files and folders.
