You will need to have this unchecked before you will see it...

"Hide protected operating system files"

which is in

Tools/Folder Options - View Tab

(thats in XP - yours will be somewhere similar in other OS's"

Is there any other way of doing that? e.g regedit or other?

I'm not running windows though, just emulating the environment to run .exe's. I tried to delete one thats on a C:/ that doesn't exist (99% of Macs use Z:/) but deleting it only moved it to the C:/ trash. Thats why I'm looking for another way as I can only launch .exe's not look at settings (p.s I can't access the files on the drive as the drive address is ../drive_c which doesn't exist. Any ideas?
