When I enable hidden files and folders option on my personal computer it gets disabled immediately.
I have done some research and I have tried:
- Changing it from the folder options menu
Editing the registery:
- Changing in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL" "Checked Value" to 1 and "DefaultValue" to 2 (everything was already fine)
- Changing in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\NOHIDDEN" "Checked Value" to 2 and "DefaultValue" to 2 (everything was already fine)
Changing (without success) in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced" "Hidden" to 1 (was/it is still to 0)
I can't change that. I get this error:
Permissions are fine and I can edit everything else in this key.
What can I do?

Edit: Fixed it. My Antivirus saved me by deleting a virus on boot!
