  1. I've suddenly started getting this weird error message every time I make changes to the Folder options (i.e. changing from Show hidden files to don't show files, hide extensions, etc). The error message makes no sense to what I am doing!!! The only changes I made to this computer prior to the error message is reinstalling my zone alarm to 7, rather than 8. I don't know how that has anything to do with the error message. Please see attached for the error message.

    "...refers to a location tha tis unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer or on an network. Etc"

    Strange thing is, I'm not trying to access anything.... please advise. Is this a registry error?!?

    I am using Windows XP SP 3.

    Good job CCT! I couldn't open the image and wouldn't have known how to search for this one!
