Does any one of you faced similar following situation before....here it is
I have Windows XP SP2 and it is running very normal , but I tried to test the antivirus "NOD 32" from "eset" company , to fix a problem happened by one trojan.
The new NOD 32 antivirus could get rid of the virus but now I cannot display the hidden files at all , so when I got to tools --> folder options--> View tab --> check "show hidden files and folders" and finally "apply" .
So I try to check the "C:\Documents and Settings\name\Local Settings\" to see some hidden files in here I cannot see any hidden files and even I cannot see the "Local Settings" folder at all.
So I go again to the tools --> folder options--> View tab --> and I find each time that the "show hidden files and folders" was automatically unchecked while the "Do not show hidden files and folders" is being checked....
I dont know why this happened and how to solve it , can you give me a help???
Thank you all for you kindness

please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
