hey r u sure that it is because of virus...........because once i have only formatted my c drive (containg windows file) and then when i checked my hiding files option it was not working..........so i formatted it once more but again the same defect, when i formatted the whole system and tried again it worked so i will suggest you to try to format whole system once and use a good antivirus (I use Bitdefender 2009 total security it rocks..........) all the best............
This is happened after I Inserted a Pendrive.The Virus which enter because of enabling the autoplay.
hey r u sure that it is because of virus...........
Control Panel -> the folder image in there -> go to the last tab, enable/disable what you want.If you've already tried that, I don't know what you should do, ask help on technical forums(Xisto for example), but never rush in reformatting!
If you had a virus preventing you to view hidden files, wouldn't it be better to first remove the virus?

I don't think all of the Antiviruses are updating regularly .......Some of the viruses are not still detectable(i.e released so far)
hi, I am using avast home 4.8 registered and fully updated version of antivirus on my pc. now it detects a suspicious file "C:windowsSYSTEM32nmdfgds0.Dll" with comments "Rootkit: hidden process". When I delete this file with the help of my antivirus, it appears again after some time (may be 10 mins). Moreover, my windows explorer don't show hidden files and system hidden files. When I enable 'show hidden files' and un-check hide system files in folder options, these automatically resets to previous. I am unable to resolve the issue & bit annoyed with my system. Plzzzz help!
the virus that your avas detected was part of the virus' root..
usually, virus' extention was *.Exe
so, maybe you can search the source of the virus' file and process. Kill the process and delete that file..
after that, you just clean the virus' root file..
maybe you can use unlocker or procexp to help you...-reply by Juneidy Wibowo
