How to hide my system files again?

Recently, I got rid of the virus "Repair Windows". In the process, the virus eventually hide all my files and I realized how to display following guides. I went in cmd Type attrib s h *. * /s /d or something to that effect and he brought back all my files, but computer system is also visible as desktop.ini files. I know that one of the two orders I've done done all files on my drive C visible, including system files, but my real question is, if I simply reverse orders (which I do not know how to do at the moment) which would also make my own cookies again? If this is the case then it is not an option and I would like to know how to hide the files where they cannot be tempered with accidentally or not. Should I just go to properties and to hide, and then select "Hide file types" in folder options, or is there a better way?

Windows has the ability to hide all system files, it's looking at the properties of each file to see if the checkbox 'hidden' or 'system' is defined.

The command you used all the flags hidden / system removed from all files on your entire hard drive.  There is no way to undo what you have (except the restoration of the system, if necessary).  The reverse of the order hiding everything, including your files.
The preferred method to hide or display files is to go to Folder Options and to "hide system files and hidden", but this is worthless today because you destroyed the game data is used by running this command.
If the system restore will not roll back to before running this command, you will need to manually enter each file and re - configure these options.

  • Re: How to get the system running again on my laptop satellite

    Everything ok and ongoing run (Vista 32 bit), also installing the update for Intel chipset seemed to agree,
    but subsequently requested reboot does not work... and the horror began :(

    No matter if the hard drive is installed or not, following events occur after passing on: hhd light indicates activity, also for disk hard desinstallion (!), in the possible bios by F2, dvd lamp is lit and portable crashes.

    What has gone wrong? How can I get the system running again?


    The whole story is a bit confusing for me. I put t know how you came the idea to update the driver chipset if everything was OK. Vista is old BONES and it is unclear to me that Toshiba has offered some updates of the chipset.

    What is confusing to me is the fact that you can not enter the BIOS settings.

    When you start your laptop you see Toshiba welcome screen and the grey line down with info press F2 to enter the establishment or F12...?

    What will happen after that? Display stays black or what?
    What happens when you press F2, F8 or F12? Everything works? Can enter you in menu start or advanced startup options?

    Try please start your laptop with the recovery DVD and press C repeatedly on startup laptop. Check if the installation of recovery will recognize.
    Post please a little detailed report.

  • How do I cleaning system files after transfer to the new iMac?

    Recently I transferred data from an old iMac (2008 version) to a new iMac (screen Retina 4 k) and know that the old system files, extensions and structure have been transferred.  Is there a software out there program that can scan the system/program files and advise those that is obsolete or are no longer necessary or useful for this new iMac?  It seems that my new iMac is slow, and in addition, there are now transferred extensions system on which I'm sure is that I no longer needed. I went from an iMac 2008 Yosemite running to a 4 K run ElCapitan Retina iMac.  Any advice would be much appreciated.  Thank you.

    This is not a task that you can use the software to accomplish. It is above all a manual effort.

  • Hide the Desktop.ini from the 'view' position, while leaving the ticked the checkbox show all system files?

    This worked fine with XP, but doesn't seem to work in Vista or W7.  I need the abililty to see all systems files and folders when you use the Explorer; However, I don't want to see the files on my desktop system.  After the 'bureau' is a special "display".  Is she can combine and display information from several sources (for example. C:\Users\Public\Desktop as well as my profile).  In addition, the desktop contains icons that are not in the profile of a user (for example. Network, computer, etc.), but they also present.  My point is that Microsoft has made a point to differentiate the Office Explorer view but incoherent.  As said above this worked fine with XP (and Windows 2000), but deserted in Vista and W7.  Y at - it another way to display all the files and folders system without displaying on the desktop?

    You have a bug because desktop.ini is not displayed, even if you check Show hidden files.

    On computer and network - icons you can hide using a customization: right-click on the desktop > personalize > change desktop icons > uncheck these icons


    I was wrong, showing desktop.ini is not a bug... You just bought too many options of folder and Search Options. I wonder how many times you need to see the protected file system? Because you unchecked to hide the protected operating system files . Another option: driver, Show hidden files and folder will show you everything you need. If you are not convinced, just go in a place where you expect that Hide protected system files will hide something important to you and to see these files will really disappear after choosing that Hide protected operating system files.

  • How to configure indexing and search for system files

    The search bar that is displayed with Start is not all system files. I chose each setting that I can find so that he can do, but no luck. I don't have indexing turned on for all of the C: drive, and I don't think I want to do. He would not mind indexing all the disk once, and then only put my clues from the user files up-to-date. But I don't think not indexing should be necessary just to find a file by its name, and I don't want to search the contents of the filesystem.

    What should do?

    By default, the search box of the start menu would not search the entire disk.  You'll have better luck if you click Start, computer, drive Local (c) and use the search box in top right of the window for the C drive.  Also, before you look, you want all the hidden files to be displayed.  Settings found under described gravityforce, and more if you click on the view tab (on the left), there are two parameters associated with hidden files to find and develop your taste: "Show etc. hidden files" and "Hide protected system files".

    I understand that the research of the start menu is for items that are likely to be where ordinary users are putting their stuff (locations of the default folders for photos and so on) and the elements of the Panel and installed software in the programs, and thus the search from the start menu is for when we try only to locate something specific between those things.  When I want to have a thorough search of the entire disk, I click Start, computer, drive Local (c) and research to this place instead.

  • I have the version, LR6, on my Macbook Pro running Yosemite.  When importing folders on my desktop, LR pulled to 50 000 'effects' or 'presets' from other photo software programs.  How to hide the?

    Hello.  I am new to lightroom and has the stationary version, LR6, on my Macbook Pro running Yosemite.  I loaded all my photos manually in LR and ask them to synchronize folders on my desktop.  I then clicked on office and says sync, and he grew up 50 000 additional files which are the result of other programs 'elements '.     So, I have about 50 records and then hundreds or thousands of photos random in the left panel of LR, who wear funny things and have (for example) a model of Christmas card photos, or a point, or a chart or a w black screen / written (a script?) green... .and they mean nothing to me without the context of the program no matter what either knows how to use them.  How to remove or hide these system files?   as they are miles long and makes it difficult to see the picture (by date) files that I intentionally imported?   Thanks in advance.  I hope that makes sense!    Tracy

    Hello Tracy,.

    It is not a good option to have selected as a watch or Sync Desktop folder in file panel Office Lightroom.

    Looks like you were other files such as old presets, filesystem in folders on your desktop.

    The only option is to remove them manually or to recover a backup of backups of Lightroom Catalog.

    Kind regards
