Show Windows Vista "super hidden" files

To show Windows Vista "super hidden" files, that is, those files that are normally hidden from the user, you'll need to accesss the registry editor.

To turn on (or off) super hidden files: (make sure you backup the registry before making changes)

* Click the Start Button, type "regedit" (Registry Editor) in the search box, and press Enter
* Click Continue to get past the User Account Control hurdle
* On the left panel, double-click to navigate to the key:
* On the right panel, double-click on Superhidden
* In the Value Data box, change the value to "1"
* Click OK
* Exit the Registry Editor
* Restart your machine for the changes to take effect
