  7. Great !! atlast someone got help from my article. Daman n Adi you are always welcome to ask any question related to IT. We will be glad to sort out your problem.

  8. Nice website. Keep up the good work.

  9. Hi!
    I tried doing that. But the problem still remains.
    I am able to change the status to “Show hidden files and folders” and apply the changes. But it doesn’t save it.
    So next time when I open Folder Option, its again “Do not show hidden files and folders”.

  10. You can apply the above registry tweak to show hidden files and folders permanently..

  11. Hi Sanix, its really good to find out the solution for that problem, thanks n regards, khurram

  12. The solution really works great. Indeed I am very much delighted to know how the bloggers of Pakistan are emerging. I am a Professional Technology Blogger from Islamabad. I started blogging in 2007 Jan and am more like a professional in this field now. Do check my blog and keep up the good work.

  13. thanks for the reply but it does not solve the problem.it again goes to do not show files. although i have scanned with th eantivirus.

  15. Yes, it works perfectly. Many Thanks and good luck . GP-INDIA

  16. In one of my clien’s XP changes in Registry is also not save and take effect for Hidden folder option. Now What?

  17. Thanks Khurram for the compliments, I will try to add more useful content to the blog as soon as I keep getting more spare time from my job.

    Dj Flush, your site is really very good. I’ve added it to my feeds reader so that I may check back regularly. Yes it’s really sad to know that not much of the people from Pakistan write technical blogs. But I hope that more people will start blogging once the advantages of blogging become more like “public”.

    sharad have you restarted your explorer after applying the registry tweak?

    GP, glad to see you happy. Keep visiting.

    Amit, have you scanned from viruses and spywares online? If not, please do a virus scan so that all the traces of the infecting virus can be removed and then apply the registry tweak. It should save and immediately take effect.

  18. Thank You very much for the Trick, dude. You are GREAT.

  19. the value gets back to 0 even if you change it to 1

  20. shabahat, probably the virus is still there in your system. Try to scan your system using online virus scanner and then see our post about killing the ravmon virus here.

  21. The show hidden files and folders isnot working at all. If Iselected the radio button “Show hidden files and folders”, and then press Ok .. the changes would just disappear upon opening the dialog again. It was probably some virus attack after which the Windows registry was not being updated properly. So here is what I did to restore it back.

    I have tried all the possible solutions as prescirbed on this website, but still the problem persists. Now what should I do.

  22. i go in the regedit and did all the setting as u mentioned but hidden folders still not working then i install ravmon.exe but the problem is still there.plz tell me some other solution to unhide my hidden folders.

  23. my run icon is disable .. its work in save mood but when i typed ther regedit its not working .. so what to do can you solve my problem

  24. If anyone’s still having trouble, here’s a fix that worked for me after I got the RavMon virus:

    1. Click “Start” -> “Run…” (or press Windows key + R)
    2. Type “regedit” and click “Ok”.
    3. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL
    4. Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.
    5. Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.
    6. The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally. Enjoy! :)

  25. Thanks Random Hajile for sharing your experiences… People share your experiences so that others can benefit from yours..

  26. Dear Random Hajile, I am very thankful to for providing this solution. The problem is solved now. and the folder options are now working now. Now I can see unhide files.
    Thank you once agian.

  27. Random Hajile…Xcellent!!!!…thank u for the insightful and helpful information…all systems are GO!

  28. Hello Dears;

    thx n luking forward

  33. Hai,
    This is Lohith from india..Actually my laptop was infected with Trojan downloader DLF.LM..Now it is removed..But show hidden files option not working…What ever you suggested i have done but its not working..Please kindly help me in this matter

  34. Lohith, probaby your system is infected with any virus.Try to scan your system using online virus scanner and then see our post about killing the ravmon virus here. and download the patch

  35. Thanks everybody for taking time to comment here and sharing your valueable experiences. For those who are still in trouble even after the tweaks mentioned in the post, it seems like you people have not scanned your system for viruses and the virus keeps on activating itself after you cancel its effect. So I would recommend a thorough virus scanning of your system before applying the tweaks above.

    Muhammad Rizwan, I would recommend you should always use only one antivirus for optimum performance. And secondly, the software you removed has probably not removed itself from the system startup. Go to Run –> msconfig –> startup .. and uncheck the program if it exists to stop it from starting on startup. And the desktop icon will only be a shortcut so it would be safe to delete it.

  36. thx buddy for ur valuable recommendation.
    but wht i m facing is that its not showing in startup and also the desktop icon is not deleted i dun knw y?
    well
    and u recommend taht i shud keep 1 antivirus ok then ca u recoomend any1 which ca really help me out.

  37. well i hav got 1 new prob, “task manager” has been disabled by administrator msg is showing ven i press cntrol+alt+del button in order to stop any runnig application+process.
    i hav run Lavasoft adaware s/w but its not working, kindly tell me the solution

  38. absolute solution, keep up the good work.

  39. Thanks Sanix, the patch worked fine. I have AVG 7.5 that checks for updates daily and does a full system scan after that. Even then, it didn’t detect the virus. I believe that my USB thumb drive is the culprit. Is there any other way in which I can scan my whole PC including my thumb drives? I haven’t used my thumb drives on my PC while and after running the patch.

  99. One of my users had the exact same issue.
    But in his case the registry values (both CheckedValue for NOHIDDEN and SHOWALL) kept reverting to 0 (zero).
    I used RegMon and observed that every couple of seconds EXPLORER.EXE is setting the CheckedValue to 0 (zero).
    Using ProcessExplorer I suspended the process EXPLORER.EXE and the updates stopped – I was able to change the value to 1 and it remained 1 after several refreshes with F5.
    But with this process suspended the system was unusable, so I resumed it and the updates to 0 started again.
    I used HijackThis and found an Autorun entry for C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AVPO.EXE which turned to be part of a malware – Trojan-PSW.Win32.OnLineGames.blt
    I was unable to see if the file still exists (maybe it’s hidden).
    He had SAV 10 running but the definitions were more than an year old (6/30/2006) and LiveUpdate completed successfully but didn’t change the date.
    I tried several anti-rootkit tools but the only useful one was Rootkit Hook Analyzer – it told me that there are 18 hooks and 3 of them were by WINCAB.SYS which is another malware AKA Infostealer.Perfwo.B
    In Command Prompt I searched for -R-H-S files in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ and it found the following 3 files:
    AVPO.EXE
    AVPO0.DLL
    AVPO1.DLL
    I was able to change their attributes and delete the .EXE files.
    So, I used Unlocker and was able to delete the 2 DLLs.
    Rebooted the laptop and tested – now the setting in Folder Options stays and everything is back to normal.

    So, it was one interesting case – I hope it might help you too…

  141. Hi All,
    I have very worst problem of “JUNK MAIL”. I have unsubscribed many times from their mailing lists but they keep on sending me that mails. I want to override this all. From this page i have learned that E-mail account can be terminated. and now i need ur help on this.
    Would any body (Especially Sanix) please advise
    1) Is it possible to re-create the e-mail account with your old ID you terminated.
    2) and if I terminate my account for a month of 2, will the “Junk Mail” stop to come my account.
    I mean if i terminate my account, would it b possibel for me to re-create my account with the same old ID and would my e-mail account be deleted from all “junk mail” lists.

    If there is any other solution please advise.
    Many thnx for your kind help.
    Regards,
    Rizwan

  152. Hey dude, currently I’m facing a problem, and I’ve tried to use the solutions shows above and other solutions that post …It doesn’t solve my problem here. I’m so sure it’s come from my USB thumb drive. Yet, it infected my computer with some symptons similar as ravmon, just the different is..

    I still couldn’t show hidden files, I’ve tried to change the value data to 1 in the Hidden registry, yet..it will automatically switch back to 2 or 0.

    Then, bout the drive, whenever I double click on any drive, it will pop up with a new explorer.

    In Control Panel -> add and remove files section, it just display alphabet A’s application then the rest was likely blank but yet i can see the space there..means I scroll til the end but showing nothing there..

    Can anyone please help me to solve this and I not sure what’s the virus actually. But it’s the same.I can see an auto.inf and a .exe files within my thumb drive at the first time i plug in, then it gone and i couldn show the hidden files anymore. Please Help and Thanks.

  171. Junaid, please scan your computer with an uptodate antivirus. Looks like you’re having a virus that’s not being removed. Without it being removed, you’ll not be able to restore your default settings. After the scan you can restore the settings with Ravmon Virus Killer.
    Please see some of the online virus scanners here:

  172. Hey, I tried fixing the “show hidden files and folders” problem, I’m using XP and your solution did not work. Even ifI use the “apply to all folders” function.

  180. hai
    my problem is that i can’t see my hidden files
    and if i click the option ‘show all hidden files’ after clicking ok .it is unable to view hidden files . and when done to do the same ..
    the radio button will be agin in ‘don,t show hidden files ‘ what shall i do.

  181. u did a fine job sanix. i have applied ur tip and recovered my problem of not showing hidden files. thanks a lot.

  182. show hidden files and folders not save

    Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box.
    Go to this key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
    Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

    In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.

    i am trying this but it cant work this problem is because of virus which creat folder in c:\heap41
    and creat the systry icon ‘H’ and ask system startup
    that same script is created my friend told me that
    this is W32.Silllyban.A viru

  183. I am working on a coputer that had some virus (jbhook.dll). I have removed it and performed several scans with online (bitdefender, panda activescan, etc) scanners and adaware and they were all run in safe mode and all say everything is fine. However in Folder Options -> View -> Hidden files and folders, both options are always checked (“do not show” and “show”). If I select one only one will be selected and if I go back both are selected again. So I look in the registry at HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced and There are two instances of “Hidden” one is set to “2″ and the other set to “1″. If I delete the one set to “2″ it stays that way until I go back in toe Folder Options -> View. Then the “Hidden=2″ is back in the registry. The “Hidden=1″ is left in there though. Also, The value of “Superhidden” is also always changed at the same time. Any ideas?

  184. Asalamoalikum

  230. Great!!! I had exactly the same problem, I followed the instructions and it did work.

    Thanks

  231. Here’s a fix thats guaranteed to work.

    Go to the following registry key:

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL

    Delete the value CheckedValue. (Its type should be REG_SZ and data should be 2.)

    Create a new DWORD value called CheckedValue (same as above, except that the type is REG_DWORD). Modify the value data to 1 (0×00000001).

    This should let you change the “Hidden Files and Folders” option.

  232. It did not work. I shall try Hasan Tahir’s trick now.

  233. Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box.
    Go to this key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
    Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

    In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.

    THEN>>>>>>>>>

    Go to the following registry key:

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL

    Delete the value CheckedValue. (Its type should be REG_SZ and data should be 2.)

    Create a new DWORD value called CheckedValue (same as above, except that the type is REG_DWORD). Modify the value data to 1 (0×00000001).

    that’s work for me, may be hasan tahir trick is the clue but i did the 2 and now everything just fine.

  257. thanks it help me

  258. This will WORK!!!

    Be aware that you actually may be infected by a virus, or maybe you once was, and the registry didnt get proberly restored.

    You should open the registry, but remember to back it up. You can make a restore point in system restore, or just open the registry and export the whole thing, or export some selected keys.

    Start >> Run >> (type) regedit >> (rightclick on the little my computer icon, and export the whole thing.)

    find this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced. Go to the rightside of the window, where the values are. Find the value “Hidden” . Rightclick it and modify it to 1.

    This next text is from my own registry. Kopy it to notepad, then rename the notepad file, so it have the extension .reg ,and then doubleclick it.:

    Please help me out

  269. Well i had this problem for three days….

    I tried the registry override thingy but it somehow managed to reset the registry setting….

    So i kindof figured it was bcoz of a virus

    One of the most common ways to spread virus is through autorun
    So i checked if there was any autorun.inf file in my hard disk

    But since i cant view my hidden files so i used the command prompt to see the file.

    Step 1: type “cmd” in Run
    Step 2: Type these commands

    > cd\
    > dir a*.inf /a

    Now u can see the autorun.inf file

    > edit autorun.inf

    If anyone’s still having trouble, here’s a fix that worked for me after I got the RavMon virus:

    a. Click “Start” -> “Run…” (or press Windows key + R)
    b. Type “regedit” and click “Ok”.
    c. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL
    d. Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.
    e. Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.
    f. The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally. Enjoy! ”

    3. I also changed in NOHIDDEN change value to 1
    in SHOWALL change value to 0 , and check the folder option now
    4. now change the values to the same
    NOHIDDEN to 2
    SHOWALL to 1

    and you can see its works coooooooll…

    open run>cmd
    ————-step1————–

    if it’s not remove try (attrib -a -s -h) attrib command on command prompt ( for more help try attrib /?)

    set value = 1 of hidden
    and
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Microsoft>Windows>
    currentVersion>explorer>advanced>folder>hidden
    set value =1 of showall
    —————————————- now check ————

  310. Thanks Random Hajile,
    I was also facing the same problem of not showing the hidden files and folders.
    i have tried the regedit formula and it has worked nicely.
    1. Click “Start” -> “Run…” (or press Windows key + R)
    2. Type “regedit” and click “Ok”.
    3. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL
    4. Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.
    5. Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.
    6. The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally. Enjoy! :)

    Again thanks buddy.

    BYE
    parag dodake

  311. Great steps, solved my issue instantly. Thanks.

  312. bhai plz help kar do yaar me arsh yaar mei hidden file show karta hoo to hota nahi plz help kar do yaar

  313. The steps are :-

    * Open registry( select run command from start menu and type regedit and then press enter)
    * In the left pane goto path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftware\Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Explorer \Advanced \Folder \Hidden \SHOWALL
    * Delete the value CheckedValue in the Right pane by right clicking it and selecting delete. (Its type should be REG_SZ and data should be 2.)
    * Create a new DWORD value called CheckedValue by right clicking in the Right pane and then selecting new -> DWORD Value and then changing the name to CheckedValue. (same as above, except that the type is REG_DWORD). Modify the value data to 1 (0×00000001) by right clicking the CheckedValue in the Right pane and selecting modify and changing the value data to 1.

    This should let you change the “Hidden Files and Folders” option.

    Why this happens? The fact that the hidden files were not showing up was due to virus which would have changed the value in the registry and the virus may be still present. Even when the virus was removed the old value may not have been restored in the registry.

  314. If it does not working do this instruction :

    1. Click “Start” -> “Run…” (or press Windows key + R)
    2. Type “regedit” and click “Ok”.
    3. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\hidden
    4. change the value with 1
    5. restart your computer
    6. don’t select the radio button “Show hidden files and folders” again. the hidden file will show automatically.

  315. ooopppsss i mean
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
    \Advanced\hidden

  316. Thanks so much Random Hajile! I can see hidden files again!

  317. Random Hajile….dude thnkx for the solution it really works..!!!!!….the first method did nutin bt ur method really helped….thnksss a lot once again…..

    • my folders are still not showing.. i was able to take off all the virus that cause y fodlers to be hidden but still the hidden folders are not showing.. i guess they called the virus the folder.exe.. i saw a lot of things on how to fixed it but none showed on how to put the fodlers back

      • hi cloud.

        try these. if you know how to work on command prompt. you better set their attributes to not hidden, not system, and not read-only file. to do these..
        1. run command prompt. [start->run]
        2. go to the root path where the folders are located(hidden files or folders)
        ex. c:\windows\
        3. execute these command.
        ex. c:\windows\attrib *.* -h -r -s

        just try.:)

  410. Show Hidden Files and Folders not working?
    The Best one
    Method 1: (By Denny)
    1- Click Start –> Run –> regsvr32 /i browseui.dll –> enter
    A confirmation message will appear like given below
    2- Click Start –> Run –> regsvr32 /i shell32.dll
    Wait for the confirmation and click OK.

    Method 2:
    Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box.
    Go to this key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoft
    WindowsCurrentVersionExplorerAdvanced
    In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.
    Now you’re all set to go. Check it in your tools menu if the changes have taken effect.

    Method 3.
    1. Click “Start” -> “Run…” (or press Windows key + R)
    2. Type “regedit” and click “Ok”.
    3. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
    Advanced\FolderHidden\SHOWALL
    4. Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.
    5. Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.
    6. The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally.
    Enjoy!
