Windows 7: Files Saved as Hidden

26 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
Files Saved as Hidden

Whenever I save a file to my desktop, I have to go into the folder options for the desktop and select to view all hidden files. The files I save, when I check their properties, are no longer hidden. I have to go through this process ANY time I save a file to my desktop, no matter the file type.

Files saved to other folders aren't hidden.

Help please ^_^
