Hi mridang_agarwal...

Click Start, then Run, type regedit, and click "OK" to open Registry Editor.
In the left pane, expand (click +) HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then Software, then Microsoft, then Windows, then CurrentVersion, then Explorer, and click on Advanced.

In the right pane, right-click on ShowSuperHidden and select "Modify". Change the Data Value to 1 and click "OK".

You should now be able to see all the files and folders on your machine...be careful now...most of these are "system critical".
