Making system folders invisible again

I downloaded some open source graphing program and it knackered my privileges (such that I could only access my desktop folder as root).



I fixed this with the disk utility repair permissions but nothing on my desktop would appear. So I just used 'find' from the menubar to make all folders visible. This brought me back my desktop items, but also all the bin, image etc folders (which should be invisible usually). I can't figure out how to make these invisible again.



Does anyone know a quick fix?

It seems like it should be relatively easy.





[Edit:



Fixed - I just used desInstaller to remove the remainder of the package that was left by the install and all the visible folders became empty so I just dumped them.



Mods can lock this this up thanks.]
