Hi Varun what radio button are you reffering to?

The way to unhide hidden folders in windows XP is:

Click Tools >> Folder options
Then click on the view tab and select show hidden files and foldes.
Click Apply then Ok

Hi varun,

The most potent cause of this problem is either with the corruption of windows system files. Or alternatively there might be a virus problem. Generally these symptoms are by the virus named " bloodhound" (detected by NAV 2007). If windows system files and OS is working fine, then there is the possibility of bloodhound. Unfortunately NAV 2007 is only able to detect it but not able to remove it. You can scan with PC tools spyware docotr or either with mcafee.
This might help you ot.

If you face further problem , just post the mail.
