I have Office 2003 Pro preinstalled (only good advantage is no activation)....any

originally it was a hidden file but i had to use "Show Hidden Files Folder Option" to view this so i could reinstall it...anyway, i forgot to change the setting back aftwerwards and i was deleting stuff from my "D" partion (i have "C" Windows and "D" partions) and when i put it back and put the hide system files and folders and didn't go back as a hidden file can i put it back so its hidden to avoid this problem again?

(I have burned a backup copy onto discs)...one othe problem i encounted was i never got a product key which stunk, so i don't know how you're suppose to reinstall anyway i rang microsoft and they gave me a new key at no charge which was a surprise....

hope you can help.....

Hello,

If you want to make a file or folder hidden, right click on the file or folder, select properties, at the bottom where it lists attributes, check the box that says hidden.

Hope this helps
Regards,

Alan.

Thenk you very much, that worked a treat, always wondered what the Hidden thing was for down there, now i know if you have things you don't want accidently deleted there is a way though putting on to a disc is just as easy tooo, again thank you.
