Hi rockamania2005!

Try the vbs script file at Kelly's Korner. The one you need to download and then run is number 155 on the left column labeled Enable/Disable Show Hidden Files/Folders.

Please post back on whether or not Show Hidden Files/Folder option is now listed.

The link works fine for me. Try it again.

*EDIT* -- You can always right-click the link and choose Copy Link Location or Copy Shortcut depending on the browser you are using, and then just paste it in the Address Bar.
