Can't hide objects, anyone ever encountered this?

I'm on Max 2018 and I've got a number of objects merged in from different sources but I can't turn them off, even when all layers are off they are visible. If I manually select them and do an 'add to new layer' they don't move to that layer, if I 'add to active layer' they don't move but if I select them in the scene explorer I can move them to another layer. Problem is, even once they're in that new layer they still won't turn off even when the layer is off and all other objects are hidden.
Any ideas?
