I don't have "show hidden file" chosen from Microsoft.

After I check the "hidden" attribute using Windows, I right-click again and the "hidden" box is still uncheck !!!

take a look at vito files.

also make sure that you do not have show hidden file chosen from 
Microsoft or it will still show hidden files.
