I am currently being helped on a hacker problem that I have. Can someone help me with a couple of questions that I have?
I have been instructed to 'create a folder' and name it 'c:\submit, where do I create this folder? How do I create this folder?
Also, I need to locate file C:\WINNT\System 32\COM_~1.EXE, how do I go about locating this file so that I can add it to the folder c:\submit?

To create a folder called "c:\submit", right click on your start button and select EXPLORE. This brings up windows explorer. Click on the root of your C drive or C:\ or Local disk (C:) Selecting it should make it blued.

On the top toolbar select FILE - NEW - FOLDER A folder appears with the name NEW FOLDER - new folder should be blue at this point. type in submit. A folder called submit should appear under the C:\ folder now. If something happens, right mouse click the "new folder" and rename it to submit.

Next... on the left side of the explorer window, look for C:\WINNT and double click it. Look below that and you should see System 32 - double click that. You should now be in C:\WINNT\System 32. Look for COM_~1.EXE on the right side of the window. If you find it, right click on the file and select copy. back to the left... find the folder you created called SUBMIT. Right click on that folder and paste it there.


You are ready to go!

Good luck

I followed your instructions and I located folder C:\WINNT and folder System32.
I looked through the whole list, but did not find anything listed as COM_~1.EXE. Any suggestions?

Sorry,
You can't just turn off IE. It's an integral part of the Win Operating systems.

Try this...

First open Windows Explorer and click on Tools on the tool bar - Folder options - A window will open - click the VIEW tab - under HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS make sure that SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS is selected.

Look for the file again. If you cannot find it, try this:

Click start - Search - All Files and folders.

Enter COM_~1.EXE Make sure it is says "look in C:\ or local drive ©

Let your computer search for the file.


Good luck

Rigel

PS - KoanYorel is right... IE is part of the op system.
