    Hello Yousaf,

    This tutorial is for Vista, but is the same in Windows 7. It may be able to help you restore this.

       Note

    Tutorial Update:

    Added Option Two and Option Three to be able to hide or show system files with a REG file download, or manually through the Registry Editor.

    Hello Asad ali, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Could you post back a screenshot of this? It may help better determine what may be wrong. :)

    How do make hidden folders permanently unhidden?


    I have gone to folder options and changed to show hidden folders, which works but I want them to show as a normal folder... not grayed out. I don't ever want them to show as a hidden folder. How do I correct in Windows 7?
    Thanks

    UPDATE: Found in folder, right click, properties, uncheck hidden.

    TubularBell,

    Can you post a screenshot so that we can which folders are grayed out? It's important for us to exactly which ones are. ::

    Alright. Got hidden issue resolved....one more thing about favorites.


    Thanks to all for help. I know NOTHING about computers. This laptop is my first one. I got it 7 months ago.
    As I have stated, I got a virus. I THINK I got rid of it. Let's hope.

    My favorites list is gone. When I try to readd a favorite to my favorites list, I get a message that says "The name you have entered for the shortcut already exists on your favorites menu. Would you like to override it?"
    This means my favorites list is somewhere and I can't find it. Where is my "favorites menu" so I can repopulate my favorites listings?

    ALSO, I keep getting Windows updates OVER AND OVER...I keep rebooting and still get them. I restored my computer to 04/12/11 to get back what I lost. Would this be why? They don't configure when it reboots, and I'm afraid this is the virus. What do I do?

    Thanks again.

    TubularBell,

    I'm glad to hear that the hidden issue is sorted.

    Your Favorites folder is located at C:\Users\(user-name)\Favorites.
