    I Cannot display System Volume Information folder or C:\Recycler folder (or they are missing!) when accessing the root. I am running XP SP3 which is fully updated.
    I also must access Local Settings folder via a FIND and then uncheck the Attributes/Hidden box to have it appear. When I perform this change (i.e. unselect the "Hidden" Attribute in Properties) I receive a popup window:
    EXPLORER: Access Violation at address 00000000. Read at address 00000000.

    These changes (e.g. unselecting the "Hidden" Attribute etc.) do not last or remain in place at the next startup/reboot!!

    I have checked and rechecked/verified the View options in FOLDER OPTIONS and definitely have "Show hidden files and folders" selected and "Hide protected operating system files" deselected!

    I'm confident that someone can help me resolve this/these issues!! Any and all assistance/direction will be greatly appreciated.

    I suggest that if you are sure that you are malware-free that you try a new user account. If all is OK there, you can "move."

    Thanks for the tip/link 1101doc! I'll let you know if I was successful or not - hopefully this is the resolution?

    Fingers crossed. Often this sort of issue is only user account deep.
