    Wven if you turn on show hidden files in Windows Explorer some files will remain hidden as Vista really doesnt want you to touch them. These files are super hidden. Set the registry value below to 1. <TABLE class=codeReg><TBODY><TR><TD vAlign=center width=18>[​IMG] </TD><TD vAlign=center width=18 colSpan=2>[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]</TD></TR><TR><TD></TD><TD vAlign=center width=18>[​IMG] </TD><TD vAlign=center>"SuperHidden" = 1</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

    You will need to reboot after changing this setting for it to work.
