System Changes
« on: April 11, 2015, 12:46:24 PM »
I have run Tweaking on my PC. It has changed my hidden files so that they're no longer hidden. Why would it do that? What benefit is that supposed to have?

Which one of my programs are you talking about?

If you are talking about the Windows Repair, the unhide non system files repair will unhide any file that isnt marked as a system file. This is because there are some viruses that hide every single file on the drive and there is no easy way to unhide them all, thats the point of that repair. But any of the normal hidden system files stays hidden.
