Hidden property of folder, ... unavailable

Hi everybody,

I have some folders in my USB (containing files, programs, etc). Now, if I activate the option Show hidden files and folders, I see these folders as hiddens. Now, I wanted to remove this property, by right-clicking -> Properties -> un-Check the box Hidden, ... but this property is un-available to me ( I mean, not active.

I also try this from cmd:
I locate in my usb drive (G:), and execute:
G:\> attrib
As a result I get the list anly of the non-hidden folders. If I type:
G:\> attrib -h
It does nothing ...?

Now, I have this folder, named antivirus, which is "hidden". I try this:
G:\antivirus> attrib
File not found - G:\antivirus\.*.

It displays the same, even if I type:
G:\antivirus> attrib -h
File not found - G:\antivirus\.*.

What can I do, to remove the hidden property???
