How to force update of explorer.exe?

By forumghost in AutoIt General Help and Support,
Title says it all, I want to modify the registry under Microsoft/Windows/Explorer/Advanced to change some "folder options", the problem is that explorer won't update to those new settings. For example if I go into folder options and change the option to show all hidden files and folders, explorer will somehow update itself and then show these folders. But not when I go into the registry and change the key myself. How do you force explorer to update itself with the new settings? Thanks
