Show Hidden files

There are numerous malwares which can attack thru pendrives and removable media.
I jus got a hit from one of the malware which disables the "Show Hidden File" option and "Task Manager"

To get rid of this problem I stumbled on the net... and yes I got the recovary methods

Even you might find this useful

1. To enable task manager 
- Go to Start Menu => Run
- Type following text there as it is
REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

- Press Enter
- Your Task Manager will be enabled again

2. To Re-activate the Show hidden files button in Folder Option
- Click “Start” -> “Run…” (or press Windows key + R)
- Type “regedit” and click “Ok”. (This is the way to enter Windows Registry)
- Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\
- Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.
- Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.
- The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally. 

If everything else fails then Check for the RRT tool (Remove Restrictions Tool) available at

Be safe
