If you want to be able to see hidden files and folders on your Windows XP computer, from a Folder view, go to the menu bar and select "Tools". Then select "Folder Options" and then the "View" tab. Under "Advanced Settings" you will find an entry for "Hidden files and folders". Select the option you want.
