What folder are we talking about? There are certain "super-hidden" files in Windows that Explorer won't show you even if you have selected to show hidden and system files. However, if you see this a lot, then a virus is a likely explanation. What do you see if you use the command prompt? Ideally, download and install a third-party command prompt (say, the free one from JPSoft), and list the folder contents with that one.

explorer folder preview image issue
Hello all! This is admittedly a minor issue but it's becoming more of an annoyance. With my picture containing folders, I like to know what's in each folder by having a preview image.
