I cannot view the hidden files and folders even after enabling the option available in tools menu. My friend suggested it could be rectified only by formatting the system. Is there any other way? Pls reply

People are awfully quick to advise re-formatting. That's like replacing your car engine when you get an ignition miss.

The link that was provided by doc1101 didn't mention anything about reformatting, care to explain your comment?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Is that explanation clear enough?

It is a vbs file to restore the view hidden files function.

To save you going back to Kellys,here is the vbs link--

http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/regs_edits...hiddenfiles.vbs

The vbs files there are pretty good & usually work.

Read any disclaimers on the site though.The main one is--

"Disclaimer: These registry edits and script files are presented "as is". Every effort has been made to ensure the files work as stated. I assume no responsibility for your use of these files."
