Go to CONTROL PANEL
select the FOLDER OPTIONS,
when the folder option window opens select the VIEW TAB,
see the advanced settings,
there you can see the folder icon with name HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS,
in that select SHOW HIDDEN FILES,FOLDERS AND DRIVES,
then click APPLY and then OK.
Then you will be able to see all hidden files, folders and drives in your computer.
I suggest this only for windows xp.
