<h2> Search system and hidden files</h2>
In windows you cannot search hidden and system files, because by default search system does not support to search hidden and system files. This is normally done to protect these files from users to modify and delete accidentally. Many computer viruses, Trojan and hackers hide their files in your computer, in this way making it hard to find them and then delete them. Some key logger and password breaker software hides their files from user to keep user password and credit card history. But you can search these hidden files (viruses, spyware, key logger) with some modification in search system.
