    I was also facing such kind of issue i tied to do the following this and it worked for me hope it will also worked for you.

    1. Click on Start.
    2. Type regedit in Run option.
    3. Registry Window would get open and now browse to the following key.

      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

    4. In the right hand area, double click on hidden and change the value to 1.
    5. Reboot your PC for changes to get effect.
