I recently noticed that I am not able to display my hidden files and not able to access important files such as Application Data under Documents and Settings.
Whenever I change the setting in Control Panel>Folder Options>View and I select the following:-
Show hidden files, Display the contents of system folders and unselect Hide protected system files
and hit the apply button and close Folder Options, and when I go back in to Folder Options, the changes are not made.
I am also not able to select 'Apply to all folders' as it is disabled.
I'm not sure whether it is a spyware that might have changed the registry or some settings I need to change
or whether my XP is fubar.
I've attached a screen dump of the settings in Folder Options.
Please help me......THanx.
