Hidden files and folders

Am using XP SP2. How can I get my Start/Search-for files and folders to
look in Hidden Files and Folders? In Control Panel/Folder Options [View]
there is a dot at Show Hidden F & F. Hope someone followed all that.

After the Search window opens, click the line to search "All Files and
folders" and then click the "More advanced options" button. Click the
boxes for the options you want; these selections should "stick" for
subsequent searches.

Somewhere I got a link to download STOPZILLA. I think it's pretty good. It
was NOT free. And yes, I found how to search hidden files.
