Need help with a script to enable hidden file extensions in Vista locally under clients user SID's. HKEY_USERS\SID\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\HideFileExt
Value must be changed from 1 to 0 to enable this feature. The show hidden files option has been removed from our locked down version of Vista.
