select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
Select the View Tab.
Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.

Click Apply , OK

Greetings,

Try to restore your system before the installation of "Folder Lock".

Try this: run registry by typing 'regedit' after clicking Start button in Windows and then click Run. Then delete this string value:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > FolderLock6 > LastLockerPath

Then boot to Safe mode , hold F8 Key when start PC

Go to My Documents and search for a file name locker with extension (*FLK) or (*FLKW) and delete.

Reboot PC in normal mode , run the Folder lock program and click trial, then enter new password/confirm new password,MAKE SURE TO REMEMBER, I use 123456 for easy one

Then go to option, and uninstall the program as you wish

THIS WORK FOR ME

Hi Ralph,

If you reinstall Windows, it will remove folder lock, but have you ever thought that it will also delete all the folders? !!! Please think!
