... after ticking show hidden files and folders "nothing happens"

... go to and open your C: drive you should now see the hidden folder "RECYCLER" ... also open "Documents and Settings" ... any lighter coloured folders were hidden before

... what did you expect to happen without interaction?

Click Start>Run then copy & paste or type:

regsvr32 /i shell32.dll

Click OK.

Restart your computer.

Note that the spacing is important

If that doesn't correct the problem download the free tool called Remove Restrictions Tool (RRT) at the link below.

Make sure you boot in to Safe Mode to use Remove Restrictions Tool (RRT).
