i don't know what happened but lately my computer is always showing an error msg that says "Your saave folder is not valid. It may have been deleted, you may not have permissions to write to, or there may be another problem. Please choose a different folder." And then the select folder shows up but every time i choose any of the folder, nothing is inside the folder eventhough there are really some files inside. Then if I cancel, that message will show again. But if i just ignore it and just let that show up, i don't actually see any harm. But it is annoying. please help.

Have you checked to make sure the folder your trying to save to, isn't Write Protected.
Right click the folder, and select Properties.
Click the General tab.
At the bottom, check to see if Read-only is checked.
If it is, uncheck it.
Click Apply.
Click OK.

If you want to delete this file try this http://www.purgeie.com/delinv/index.htm worked for me when I could not delete a file because it showed no file path - tried everything but nothing worked until I found this program which is free for individual use.

LIMEWIRE is a nightmare! It came with my OEM software; full of problems. Suggest you use Add/Remove programs (from Control Panel) to delete the whole thing. Then you should do a search on LIMEWIRE and delete everything else. I have found the music sites to be full of problems. NAPSTER is just as bad. I blocked both of them on my Explorer -Tools- Options - Security.

My Win98 PC showed up today with a "Bloodhound Exploit" virus that Norton couldn't fix (it is quarantined). Suggest you use the Bleeping favorites (Ad-Aware and Spybot) to check your machine (go to the Forums "if you are new" and follow the preparations for a Hijack THis log). It gives you resources on how to clean up your machine.
