      To display hidden files and folders

      Open Folder Options in Control Panel.

      Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

      Click Appearance and Themes, and then click Folder Options.

      On the View tab, under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders.




      Hope this helped

          Try this Remove Restrictions Tool

          ----------
          And/or.

          Check the registry settings.
           
            A) Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box.
          Go to this key:
          HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
          Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
           
          In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.
           Now you’re all set to go. Check it in your tools menu if the changes have taken effect.
           
           B)
          1. Click “Start” -> “Run…”  (or press Windows key + R)
          2. Type “regedit” and click “Ok”.
          3. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr  entVersion\Explorer\
          Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL
          4. Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.
          5. Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.
