Show hidden and system files unchecks itself
I've got a Windows 2000 computer and I am logged in as the administrator. When I change the folder view settings to "show hidden files and folders" and click apply and close, it resets itself immediately, and will not show the hidden files. If I go back to the properties box, the box will have unchecked itself. This seems to be the case for ALL options in the VIEW tab of FOLDER OPTIONS.
By the way, this condition also exists in safe mode.
