Try going to Control Panel and click the Tools tab at the top. Then select Folder Options, then View. Scroll down until you see show hidden files and folders and check it. Be careful with, they're hidden for a reason.

You might have to temporarily show protected system files too,
but I wouldn't leave it set that way.

According to google relytec is a keylogger program. Do you have that installed?

Create a Puppy Linux "Live CD" (burn an "image" from the download). Set your CD drive first in BIOS, if not already, and boot with the CD in the drive. You will then be able to access the contents of the folder and it shouldn't hide a thing. Note that everything is single click.

When you reboot without the CD you will be back to Windows.

EDIT:
When I typed this in I hadn't spotted the folder name. If you have a keylogger
which you didn't install knowingly it puts a different light on it.

Are you restarting the machine after you make these changes to view hidden/protected files etc?

It's a good day when you learn something

Wowee Dan Penny
Long time no see, how u doin' ?
I've supposed to have left this place but ended up creeping back on
a rather lower key basis.

Btw, I've usually found those settings take immediately without rebooting.
