When scanning with whatever program, I havent really taken notice, and Im pretty sure that hidden files DO get scanned, Id just like some confirmation.
When scanning with an Anti Virus program, such as MSE, Does it scan hidden files even though you have them set to hidden...Im pretty sure it does, but can anybody confirm?
