I was hoping that i could get some help with a problem that I am having. When I was doing a virus scan I noticed that I had a folder that was called C:Uploads and it had a whole load of games that I havn't put on my computer. When going into C: I don't have a folder called uploads so I am assuming that it's hidden. But I could be wrong I don't know much about compters. I would like to remove them but first I have to find them. I'm not sure what other infromation someone would need to know about my computer to help. I'm running Windows XP. I have Pentium 4 with 512 DDR SDRAM. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have a great Day!!!

To see your hidden files and folders Open the Control panel/ Double click Folder Options/ Go to the View tab/ Select "Show Hidden Files and folders" and uncheck "Hide Protected system files"/ click Okay.

You can have a look in the Add/Remove Programs for theses games.

Did the Anti Virus give you any warning about the the C:Uploads folder?
It could be a nasty.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
