    Hi,

    Using Win98se. About a week ago I noticed a folder in "my computer" between Cont/Pan and Networking w/no name. I can not open it and when I right click on it I get the options to Cut, Create shortcut, or Delete. I have no clue as to what action to take, if any. What to do?

    Regards, big ed

    If you hover your cursor over the file does it give you the size of the file?

    Hi,

    If I put the cursor on the folder I get no response at all. The ? has confused me a bit. But then, I get confused easily!

    Hey big c,

    I think I am in never never land! Tried to get into safe mode (holding down cont key or punching F:cool: but was not successful. Tried to use scanner (hp 4200c) and got error. Tried to uninstall scanner using uninstall in prog list and then cont. panel. Cannot uninstall. Tried to go online to send you reply and ISP was corrupted. Had to un and reinstall. Had previously run up to date Spybot and Adaware se before my first post; if that means anything.

    Thanx, big ed

    If you are using Tweaki, this link will help. If not, it won't. :)

    Ahhhh, rats! I guess I have a few other issues besides the "untitled folder". I'll see if I can sort some of them out and then come back. I have "Tweak UI" but not "Tweaki". Thanks for the replys.

    Hey Guys, Was getting "iexplore caused gen protect fault in mod unk @ 0000:eek:oo1a0ea and 0000:0001f929". Seemed to happen only when I was reading google news and scrolled to bottom of page. Tried to get help from MS (oops). When I use firefox browser everything ok! Still have untitled folder. Trying to preserve whatever sanity I may still possess.
