    So, now I am having a new problems. My windows 10 is not allowing me to see my hidden files. It wont even give me a warning. I will click on options within the folder, check Show Hidden files, etc, I will click Apply, the page will blink and nothing. It goes back to what it was before.

    I did the following step so far, but it already showed a 1 for my data value. So I do not know what else to do.

    performed the following Steps but the modify key value reverts back to 0.
    Go to Start --> Run, then type Regedit
    2. Navigate to the registry folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
    CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHO WALL
    3. Find a key called CheckedValue.
    4. Double Click CheckedValue key and modify it to 1. This is to show all the hidden files.)

    Any other ideas?

    I also forgot to add the following issues: (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) Windows couldnt find required files to complete the requested changes. Make sure you are connected to the internet and try again.

    Error code: 0x800F081F

    Now, I am definetely connected to the internet as you can tell. I have searched all over and tried many options with no results. my computer tells me that I have the latest one, but I have a few apps that require .NET 2.0 and 3.0. So as you can see more head aches.

    .Net Framework 3.5 (

    Save as ShowHideHiddenFile.vbs /Format = UNICODE/
    Put in some folder or drive and if You click it You must see hidden files and folders in this folder or drive.
    If You want to show/hide all hidden files and folder, save it in Windows folder and if possible use for example right click mouse submenu.
    If it works, Your system also works. If not, You must find, what's the problem.
    Copy this vbs code to notepad and save as I said above. Remember, it must be UNICODE, not ANSI or UTF8 or something else.
    Hidden = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Hidden"
    SSHidden = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\ShowSuperHidden"
    Set Command = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    Check = Command.RegRead(Hidden)
    If Check = 2 Then
    Command.RegWrite Hidden, 1, "REG_DWORD"
    Command.RegWrite SSHidden, 1, "REG_DWORD"
    Command.RegWrite Hidden, 2, "REG_DWORD"
    Command.RegWrite SSHidden, 0, "REG_DWORD"
    End If
    Command.SendKeys "{F5}"

    Have you considered you may possibly have a virus?

    The system not wanting you to see hidden files is suspicious.

    he has corruptions.. bad hdd or memory.. or virus.
    .net not working is a sign.
    run jrt, adwcleaner.

    edit:first run chkdsk /f

    use .net cleanup tool then in command prompt admin.
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-image /RestoreHealth
    sfc /scannow
