Hi metalaureate,
You may have to enable viewing of hidden files and folders on your system to be able to view the file.
To do this, follow these steps:
Open "My computer"
click on "Tools"
Click on "Folder Options"
Click on "View" tab
nder "Hidden Files and Folders" make sure it says "Show hidden files and folders"

Hope this helps!
