Start ->Run->regedit->hkey_local_machine->software->microsoft->windows->current version->explorer->advanced->folder->hidden->showall,
here on the right side you will observe a key naming CheckedValue,here if you find it's value as 0, then rename it as 1, if such a key not exist create one

Now try this :

hkey_current_user->software->microsoft->windows>current version->explorer->advanced, on the right side you will see a key hidden,rename to 1 again, if not create one

keep the above step done as it is, don't change it's value to 0 again

As Batistabomb said goto the SHOWALL key and on the right side make sure the 'type' of CheckedValue is REG_DWORD. Usually the virus changes this too. So first delete this old 'CheckedValue' and create a new 'CheckedValue' of type 'REG_DWORD' and give value of 1.

Usually any manual modifications in widows registry takes effect only after a proper reboot. So restart your computer and try that step once again.
Besides check this site too., it has got fixes for almost all faults that occur in windows.

Check the line number 155: Enable/Disable Show Hidden Files/Folders in this site.

I had the same problem. I exported the above setting from a different PC and did as I had mentioned above and it worked. Please not that you should have admin rights to do this. If this does not work, then your virus infection is still active.

looks like a case of grum infectin

run in cmd:
del /a:hs c:\setup.exe
del /a:hs c:\autorun.inf

also search for hidden exe file in
c:\windows\system32\drivers\
dir /a:hs

then put this in registry
