Hi 2bn2b, welcome to the forums.

Have you un-checked 'Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)' in Folder Options?

My Vista ones hidden too until I un-check that setting.

(Most people leave it checked, mainly for safety and also because it shows 2 .ini files on the desktop when unchecked)
