As i said in the topic, i'm missing the "show/hide hidden files" checkbox in folder settings. Most people suggest editing the registry key for it (at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advan ced\Folder\Hidden] ), but i don't have "Hidden" in the "Folder" directory of my registry.
If you have any ideas how to fix this without reinstalling windows, it'd help a lot.
Thanks in advance guys, i see that you are doing a very good job here.

P.S. Found a fix after all (download http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/wp-conte...dersettings.reg , add to registry and then follow directions from any forum). Thanks anyways :)
