Windows 7 Beta

Today I discovered that I cannot click on the "Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives" radio button and make it stay clicked. I needed to access the hidden "temp" folder under my account folder and when I tried to make the hidden files visible I noticed this issue. When I click on the "show hidden.." radio button and click Apply it appears to stay clicked. I still cannot see the hidden files and when I refresh the selection window the radio button is shown as unclicked again.

Besides that, Windows 7 is working perfectly. No complains.

Go to the Start button and type in "Windows Explorer" (without the quotes)
At the top of the search box will be a link for Windows Explorer - right click on it and select "Run as Administrator"
Then try to Show Hidden Files.
