  1. Hey

    Ive recently done some cleaning up on my Dell inspiron 1501 laptop after getting really clogged up with game saved folders that remove programs didnt delete. However on the next startup the following folder appeared on my desktop:

    %SystemDrive%

    I dont want to deleat it incase its something to do with my Windows XP os or something usefull. It doesnt seem to go anywere it just goes:

    Documents and setting>Oliver Taylor>Application data>Microsoft>CryptnetUrlCache
    >SystemCertificates

    system certifdicates leads to another 3 empty folders and the other cryptnetUrlCache leads to 2 folder each with 2 System files in with a load of numbers in the titles.

    Hope this is enough info Cheers

    Oli T

    Send it to the recycle bin & see if the system works properly without it.
