Often this is caused by a worm. There is a tool available that can temporarily overcome this so that you can view hidden files. It is called remove restrictions tool. If you google it you will find several places to download it from. I have used it recenty and it worked great for me, but I can't say it will work great for you.
In my case, the worm created hidden files, and then did not allow me view hidden files. It also did not allow me to access the C: drive. When I clicked on the C: in My computer, I received a Dialog Box asking me what program did I want to use to open the C: drive. Do you have this issue also? I also found a way to overcome this issue.
