Okay, so a year or so ago this computer got infected with a virus, and was sent off to a computer "specialist" to be fixed...
well low and behold somehow the guys managed to install windows on this machine twice..
im left with Windows and Windows.000 on the system (98se for those that want to know)
now, this boggles my mind as both folders seem to be pretty identical, but only windows.000 asks you to "show files" incase you damage them..
this makes me think that C:\windows isn't needed any more... BUT (and its a big but)
when you go to install new drivers, it always asks for me to insert 98se disk, but i can get around this if i copy this files from C:\windows..
I.E... its searching for C:\windows.000\somerandomdriver.ini
and i can solve this problem by erasing the .000... therefore ending up with
so surey its running off the original windows? correct?
who bloody knows? i hope you do!!
so is there anything i can do about this..
in the end of it, its only taking up .5 of a gig.. but on a 9gig HDD you need all the space you can grab..
aaaaanyways. please help. Adam
