Windows 7: This view folder stuff

This view folder stuff

Why can't I see some subfolders in for example Program files? I have checked this in Control Panel, Folder options (so all folders should be shown), but for some - unknown to me - reason, some folders are missing for a certain program. I simply don't understand why, and I have taken ownership over that particular folder.

What folders are you talking about?

Thanks. I actually found the solution myself. The problem was that a program had a reference to its data as c:\program files\program\data (clearly written that way), but for some unknown reasons this folder was actually located under somewhere under users\(looooooong path I can't remember)

Completely impossible to guess, so Microsoft has really made some efforts here to hide peoples data!

If I change the view of one folder, the view of all folders changes?!?
For example, if I change the view of one folder to "large icons" or to "list" or whatever, then ALL of the folders will have that view. But I want specific folders to have specific view types. How can I accomplish this?
