login as administrator and from command prompt go to the file/folder parent to whom you like to unhide and

C:\<your parent folder>\attrib  <your folder/file>
check out the attrib of your file/folder say it is +h +s

then do this
C:\<your parent folder>\attrib  -h <your folder/file>

hope it helps.

Slightly greyed out?

I know this sounds silly, but it's a feature and does not mean the folder is actually hidden.

It's there for convenience, to allow you to unhide everything down a tree without first hiding it. It does not actually mean the folder is hidden.

You can verify this from the command prompt with:

attrib <folder name>

If  the H flag is not listed then the folder is not hidden.
