    It's just a precaution from windows to stop you from deleting files you need...

    There are 2 scenarios:

    1. There should be some text where you'd expect the files to be, with a "link" to show files...

    or

    2. Windows is just hiding all systemfiles...

    You can force windows to show them by doing the following:
    In explorer:
    Go to "Tools"
    Then "Folder Options"
    The "View"
    and click the "Show all files"

    Or

    "Tools"
    "View"
    click "Show all files"

    This is from w2k, and I'm not quite sure what the differences between 98se and 2k is in regards to names, but if you look around you should find a "view" and after clicking it you should se several options... Hunt through them and you'll find the "Show All Files"...

    Hope this helps, if not just wait a bit, or ask again (in this thread) and someone else with either better memory, or running 98se will tell you exactly what to do... :)
