    Hi

    well some day ago i had a problem , a dll installed by a program(nero 6.0) gave me many problems

    luckily i discovered the files and delete them , they are stored in system32 dir of my xp


    well i don't know which are the files in my system or sytem32 that are not microsoft , i mean that other software installed in my pc
    a solution is use a program like total uninstall , and check which files the installer put in these folders

    well i would like to know if there is a program that scan these folders and tell me which are the files that not microsoft files

    i mean at least that notice me which are not included in the xp os

    every program useful are welcome


    thanks
    have a nice day

    Agree

    mantra, if you were simply curious who belonged to who, I would suggest adding the Company Name column in Windows Explorer for the Systems 32 folder. While some files want be recognized, Microsoft files will and even others.

    Open Windows Explorer and go to View > Choose columns and select Company Name. As far as I know, you would have to highlight each folder\sub-folder that you wished to add the Company Name column to.

    Sound's like a filter's issue. Is it you're intention to use both program's, or has one been removed?
