Hi '
I did a disc clean up today and noticed that in the C\Windows Downloaded Programs Files one had a Damaged , under the status its creation date was 08/27/02 last accesed today 10/15/05, the program file was 9F1c11aa-197b. Do you remove things like this, do they cause any harm all the rest looked okay allthough on 2 files it said the status was UKNOWN> Thanks Clank

Hi there,

Start > Run > copy and paste in:
sfc /scannow
Click 'OK'
You will need your XP/2000*Grinler disk. If you don't have it and instead only have a recovery CD, there is a work around. View the following link for a tutorial:

http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html

sfc - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.

It's a safe way of dealing with things like that ;)..let me know if that solves the issue.

Hi HappyShinner you say (You will need your XP/2000*Grinler disk. If you don't have it and instead only have a recovery CD,) but you don't mention what to do with it (not being rude)

XP came already installed on my computer but I do have a recovery disc but I had to use that once before and it wipes everything from your computer doesn't it.

You make it sound very easy Iam only a beginner and a rubbish one at that,

Clank :thumbsup:

Try just renaming the folder in question and see if it affects the computer operation.

If it causes no problems it is probably safe to delete fter a period of time.
