My windows xp might be infected with the virus/worms or hijacked. Problem is - I cannot retrieve any Hidden files from the windows xp folders. When I change the setting to "shown hiddenfiles and folders" from Folder Options/View menu, this setting always goes back to the previous setting "Do not show...". So hidden files are still in the black hole and none of them can see. Very secure!
I don't want to format HD and re-install the windows from the scratch.
Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
