Thanx, but I'm familiar with the settings you mentioned above.
It doesn't solve my problem completely.
The hidden files which i don't want to be shown in the search results
are hidden by windows AND their folder is locked with password by 3rd party
utility, so there is no way to see them or open them while they are locked.
How can i hide those specific hidden (by Windows 7) and locked files from being shown
in the windows explorer search results even if someone knows how to set back to "Show hidden files" in folder options?
