Unhide Non System Files - Unwanted Bug (Solved)
« on: November 29, 2011, 02:40:43 AM »
Applying the 'Unhide Non System Files' on Windows 7,
I have encountered that this function unhides also the folders, especially the
C:\Users\"USER"\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned
that must stay hidden by default. So it shows a pinned folder on the taskbar that I can't hide again.

May you fix it?

You may consider to move the item 'Unhide Non System Files' to the bottom of the fixes list
(it's also alphabetically cool :tongue: and the new voice could be: Unhide Non System Files (extreme) or Unhide Non System Files (hard)
or... what you like best).

Thank you, hexist.

The unhide files repair I made because of the new viruses going around that are hiding every file on the drive.
I am not seeing the problem on my machine that your having, can you do a screen shot to show me? Seeing it will help me better understand :-)

I could have the unhide files repair skip that folder :wink:

I thought of that as well. Tell I went to go do it. ALl the code is written by the order of the list. If I changed the order I have to change the code, it would be a lot of work. I need to try to find a better way of running the repairs in the list. This way I can sort the list and not have to change any code around.

I will save that for a future version. Putting a lot of my time into the next program "Tweaking.com - Advanced System Tweaker"
Need to start getting testers ready as well :-)

Hi shane, I've tested the release 1.5.6 to make a screenshot but it seems the problem is solved.
Great.
