    Not really a C question, eh?

    Anyway, if the file is hidden and system'd, you'll probably need to remove both attributes with one command.
    >attrib -s -h filename.sys

    But then what are you playing with that is system and hidden? Are you *supposed* to be doing that? I don't think the OS will be too pleased if you start touching it's files
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
