This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If you've seen that question, why did you ask it again? – Shevek Nov 21 '11 at 14:40
it just just a command/batch file to run. which as to be run everytime – aWebDeveloper Nov 21 '11 at 15:30
The accepted answer states "If you want this for a few directies, just set it to run once a day on that directories." [sic] so it covers what you are asking for. If you don't know how to set up automated tasks in Windows then that is a completely different question, and also answered here on SuperUser. – Shevek Nov 21 '11 at 16:20

If you are asking whether there is a way to change the default behavior in Windows to automatically hide these files, the answer is no.
