Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit RTM
 
 

HiddenFilesToggle worked for me when i was using Windows 7 32 Ultimate. I have just recently upgraded to Win7 64 since i bought a SSD. it seems it's not compatible with the 64 bit version. this is driving me nuts. i used this toggle several times a day.

if anyone finds a solution, i would greatly appreciate it.
