Config.msi file is supposed to be hidden. Where did you see it ? How did you manage to hide it? What steps did you use to hide it? Can you not just reverse the steps?

If you must, try this.......
Start button > search box, type folder options > Enter > at the top, click View >
under Hidden files and folders heading, check the radio dot at Show hidden files, folders and drives > click OK when done.

I suggest you download and install a freeware utility called everything.exe. It runs in the background and will instantly find any file which contains your search qhery. BTW it works only on NTFS volumes. For all file systems use locate32.or Cathy which are not dynamically updated.

In windows explorer you can simply go to Tools > Folder options, View Tab. Then select "show hidden files, folders, and drives". After that you should be able to see it in the C:\ folder; it should have a little lock icon beside it because it is system protected.
