Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP)

Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP) :

Windows XP except normal files that you can see all the time have and hidden files / folders which are usually very important for system and them you can see only if you activate option "Show hidden files and folder". This option is also very useful because it allows you to gain access to all the files that you own on your computer (lot of spy programs use hide option so you can not see them directly after installation and they usually can make a lot of problems on computer). To see hidden files follow the next couple of easy steps :

Step 1 : Enter in My Documents or at any folder that you make and in bar on the top of screen chose Tools > Folder Options (like on this picture).
