Please try to turn them on:

 

  1. In the search box on the taskbar, type folder, and then select Show hidden files and folders from the search results.
  2. Under Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then select OK.

Well, you are trying to find a needle in a haysack. Run Windows defender, it will help you to find out.
