Run>regedit

Go to this key:

Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.

When I try to login to my PC,I ain't really sure if its already the administrator or whatever.But when I login an error says 'Windows cannot load your profile because it maybe corrupted.Contact your administrator to find the local profile and logging and its logging on with a temporary profile.Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off'

Thats what I get.Now anyidea on enabling me to access hidden files ?
