Is It Safe To Unhide Appdata Folder?

So guys,

I've had crashes with my vga application and the problems solved by unhide the /user/Appdata folder.

The question is it safe to unhide this folder?

Thanks

no harm will come of it, but it is generally a good idea to keep the hidden folders hidden if it is a shared computer and you have pesky teenagers, ( i speak for myself!) and dont want them deleting important system files.
