Default hidden file and folder probs

Anyone have any idea how to fix the Hidden folder/file option to stick to enable me to see them? No matter what I've done so far as in searching for solutions has worked. I can't remember them all so feel free to throw me some suggestions to re-try.

This is on a desktop XP pro 32bit by the way. Hidden file/folder options under folder options and view.. I'm not hiding them these are normal hidden folders and files on the OS.

I've scanned this system with several things to make sure itís clean and it is. So I'm not sure what else is causing it or what other solutions to do.

Click My Computer
Click "C"drive
Click tools
Click folder options
Click view
show hidden files and folders (dot)
Be careful as you can turn your computer into a doorstop.

Is this computer a home pc or part of a network (Possible group policy settings disabling the writing of your profile). Are you certain that your logon account is part of the local administrators group?
