Solution Show hidden files and Folders Not Working in Windows

There is a virus not new but still struggling to most of people out there, which affect to the hidden files and folders. Your hidden files and folders never come up again even you trying to changing the show hidden files attribute in windows folder option.

This is really annoying which never enable you to see your files again, it seems all are dead most of people bother with this matter even after cleaning the computer with good antivirus nothing happen even the virus is removed.

Here is the complete solution for that. First of all you need eliminate the virus from computer, still you haven’t any good antivirus my suggestion is try AVG free one and clean the computer with newest updates. This will remove virus but still your folder not be visible.

Next thing is open the registry editor (go to "start" > "run" and type "regedit")
  • Follow the path given below:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL
  • Find keys:
CheckedValue REG_DWORD 0x00000001(2)
DefaultValue REG_DWORD 0x00000002(2)

Double click on "CheckedValue" and change the value from "2" to "1"

Ex: CheckedValue REG_DWORD 0x00000001(1)

And Restart the computer, you are done!!
