attrib +h .hg

from the cmd prompt inside the root dir of the repo/wc.  Maybe an option on
the Right-Click Properties menu from Explorer.  I'm not sure (don't have
Windows running right now.)

NOTE: Even if the file is marked hidden, it may still show up if you have
show hidden and system files option checked in the options dialog (at least
for XP).
