I hope this is the right spot for this question. If it is not please feel free to move it to the appropriate section. I have two questions for you first of all. When I first bought my computer when I went into my C: drive all by file folder names were black. Now when I go in there some of them are black some of them are blue. I was just wondering if that was normal or if there was something wrong. If there's something wrong what can I do to fix it. My computer is a Pentium 4 and I am running windows XP.

My next question is when I am doing a virus scans and ad ware scans. I keep seeing a file folder called C: uploads. I don't have a file folder with that name I go to try and find it and there is no file folder with that name. There is a whole bunch of teams in that folder and none of which I have on my computer. I'm guessing that file folder is hidden is there a way that I can make it on it so I can delete it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I do not have an answer :thumbsup: . But i have SOME file names that are like that, they are in blue colored font. I think it means like it is Compressed or someting.

EUREKA!!! :flowers: I found out what it means. It means that it was compressed, THANK YOUs FOR THE FOLKS AT Google! :trumpet: I guess i was Right. :thumbsup: . Remember :inlove: Blue Files = Compressed, or in Laymans terms, Squeezing the size down a bit.
