Open any folder and go to Tools > Folder Options. Then click on the View tab. You should see a Hidden Files and Folders catagory. Click Show hidden files and folders then scroll down some and uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) box.

Edit: You should be able to edit the autorun.inf in notepad.

To see all files...Start/My Computer/Explore...Tools/Folder Options/View tab.

Elect to show hidden files/folders.

Remove checkmark from Hide extensions for known file types.

Remove checkmark from Hide protected operating system files.

Re autorun.inf files...if you tell us what you are trying to accomplish, someone can tell you how to do it.
