    There is a process, by this I hope you will be able to locate the hidden file from your machine. For that open start menu, and type and insert eth enema of the folder or any file name, those are inside of that folder, and press ENTER. It will search the desire file or folder, which name you inserted, now after that right click on the file or folder name, nod from eth properties window, uncheck hidden option. i had the similar issue, and after did this process the problem is solved. Try this.

    According to me this is completely operating system problem, the issue can be solved by reload the operating system in your machine, because I was also facing similar issue, after that one of my friend suggest me with this process, and by this the problem solved. But remember, if you are having hidden files in that drive where the operating system is installed, then replace the files from there. Now insert windows installation disk and reboot your machine. Now from the windows installation window, choose install now option. By following some of the installation instruction to completes the process. Now before install any driver or other software applications in your machine, make sure that the hidden files are present in your machine, and you can able to access them. Go through this, I hope by this you will sure overcome from the problem.
