Refreshing windows

Rephrasing of question:

Is it possible to create a batch file which when run refreshes windows.

For example, when I select "show hidden folders" in control panel, it takes my computer about a minute to automatically recognize this  Confused.

However, once I right click on my desktop and select "refresh" from the menu that pops up, the change is recognized instantly and my hidden folders are viewable. I am wondering if there is a way to create a batch file to automate the process of "refreshing." [Not referring to the web but to my pc]

Thanks very much.

If you are not physically at the machine(which I guess is why your asking) you can list contents of folders, including hidden and system files with a bat script and out put it anywhere you want becasue why you would need to have something do F5 for you if your physically at the machine?

Don't worry, you won't need him. I found a solution using nircmd.

Thanks anyway. Now for the explanation of why I asked this question:

I am constructing a self-progating hacksaw [For experimental purposes only  :-)]

Frankly, I've never hacksawed anyone or intend to.

When someone plugs an infected usb drive into their computer, I want to ensure that no one

knows that their usb drive has been modified. So, I have a batch file autorun which first hides the computer's

hidden and system files before installing the hacksaw. The registry change that must take place does not refresh fast enough for the

files to avoid detection. Obviously, I am not on the person's computer so I

can't just walk up and tap "F5." Not all computers have all hidden and system files hidden.

but the ones that do will be MUCH more likely to notice

Is there a way to quickly check if hiding system and hidden folders is on?
