Thread: System32 folder shows hidden in XP Pro




  1. #1

    Default System32 folder shows hidden in XP Pro

    I always have these files unhidden and I've checked the Folder Options. Any ideas as to what's going on?

    Here's a screenshot:
    Gigabyte EP45-UD3R (rev 1.1, bios F12), E8400 @ 3.83Ghz, Xigmatek S1283, 2x2Gb OCZ2RPR11504GK Reaper PC2-9500 HPC 1150Mhz, PNY 9600 GSO 768MB PCI-e OC , CoolerMaster 590, WinXP SP3 32bit and Win7 Pro 64 Bit (swappable HDD's via Icy Dock)

    Try going there without windows blinds enabled, and not in "Explore" mode

    If things persists you may need to run SFC /Scannow

    Disabling WindowBlinds is no biggie but I'm not clear on what you mean by "and not in Explore mode".

    What he means is to use My Computer instead of Windows Explorer.
