"Do not show hidden files and folders" domain setting.

Hello,

I've searched everywhere for a solution to this.  I am trying to use either a batch file, VB script, or Group Policy on Windows Server 2003 to set this option to "Do not show hidden files and folders" on Windows XP and 2000 machines.  Any thoughts out there...?

You might have to select the force option (/F)

Thus:
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced /v Hidden /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /F

Do the tweak in either a batch or a batch delivered via a logon GPO

so do a reg.exe from a batch

reg add HKCU\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced /v Hidden /t REG_DWORD /d 2

Wait a minute, that path is wrong.

Try this instead:

reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced /v Hidden /t REG_DWORD /d 2
