show all (protected operating system files e.g. boot.ini, autoexec.bat etc.) content of hard disk with shelllistview

I want to show protected operating system files with a shelllistview/treeview to delete also folders like : found0001
, but how can I get them via tshelllistview?

Currently Thelllistview is coupled with explorer. If I set the options in Explorer to : Show protected operating system files then I see them in my Prog.

Did you set otHidden in ObjectTypes to True?

Well, you know, I have tried it using the std TShellListView with ObjectTypes of [otFolders,otNonFolders,otHidden]
and I can see my Page file (pagefile.sys) with a type as "System File".

I am using XP-SP2 and Delphi 7 (Build 8.1)

While you're at it, why not just download these open source controls:

Here's a demo, too:

They actually host Explorer and they work great.
