Hidden folders in 2008 server

Hi,
i have restored few folders from 2003 servers to 2008. I am able to see all folders except one. when i check that folder on 2003 i found "hide" attribute was selected there.
I have selected "show hidden files and folders" on 2008 server but it still not viewable.

Please help me i m trouble..

Sorry, yes Run as administrator. I leave UAC ON, because it helps to prevent you from doing something stupid, like get infected by malware when browsing the Internet, or accidentally deleting files a normal user wouldn't have access to.

i tried to change attribute with all available windows command but it says "access denied" however i m the member of local admin, domain admins and also took ownership of parent folder and child object.
seems like some spyware/malware.

You are being blocked because you are running as a standard user because of UAC (User Account Control). Run the command prompt elevated and then you will have permissions. To run elevated, right click on the shortcut you use to start the command prompt and select Run elevated.
