You have to change a couple of things, this is what I do:

a. Put check mark in Display contents of system folders.

b. Remove Do not show..., elect Show hidden files/folders.

c. Remove check from Hide extensions for known file types.

I then can see all files and file extensions, thus making myself able to clearly have some idea of whether I have the right path or not.

PC manufacturer & model?

Is XP updated?

What antivirus program is installed?

Last time you ran chkdsk /r on the system?

Other known apparent system problems?
