If you are using Windows 95, 98, 98SE and ME then you need to replace c:\windows\system32 with c:\windows\system.


May be getting ready to tackle this. How excactly do I do the above?

I changed the text to make it more understandable just now. Go take a look and tell me if it makes more sense.

Okay :thumbsup:
Replace all occurences? Im a rock I guess. This does not mean others won't understand it.


Rename them? Regedit > Edit > rename

What I am saying is for example a instruction says this:

#


# When the computer has restarted and you are back at the desktop delete the follow folders and directories:

1. c:\windows\inf\java.pnf
2. c:\windows\java
3. c:\windows\system32\wjview.exe
4. c:\windows\system32\jview.exe


What I am saying is that if you have 95/98/me, replace where it says c:\windows\system32\ above to c:\windows\system32.

I am not sure its you, i think it may be unclear. If you can think of a better way to word it let me know and i will do so :thumbsup:

I still do not get it.

What I am saying is that if you have 95/98/me, replace where it says c:\windows\system32\ above to c:\windows\system32.


How do I replace these from one to the other? Or is it just the folder that I choose while in Search for Files and Folders?

Thanks for you patience. :thumbsup:

BTW your new Av. rocks! :flowers:

Yeah i like the new av as well :thumbsup:

What i am saying is that if the instructions say:

# When the computer has restarted and you are back at the desktop delete the follow folders and directories:

1. c:\windows\inf\java.pnf
2. c:\windows\java
3. c:\windows\system32\wjview.exe
4. c:\windows\system32\jview.exe


and you are using windows 98/95*Grinler those instructions become

# When the computer has restarted and you are back at the desktop delete the follow folders and directories:

1. c:\windows\inf\java.pnf
2. c:\windows\java
3. c:\windows\system\wjview.exe
4. c:\windows\system\jview.exe


Notice how system32 in the instructions have been substituded with system?

Oh I think I got it. With ME I am to be on the lookout for:

c:\windows\system\

Not:

c:\windows\system32\

Right?
