Solved: Local Settings Folder Missing?
Hi all,

I've been there so many times...

Start>My Computer>C drive(or wherever Windows in installed)>Documents & Settings>User Name>Local Settings.

Then I open a couple of folders and delete all those temp files etc.

BUT....after a clean install and a couple of repairs later I note that the Local Settings folder that should reside within each users folder in Docs & Settings, isn't there?

So where are they???

Is it normal that this file is absent???

Any thoughts on this???

Thankyou to all in advance.....

Go to the Folder Options "View" tab, place a checkmark in everything that starts with "Display - -", remove the checkmark from everything that starts with "Hide - -", select "Show hidden files and folders", click "Apply to all folders", then click Apply - OK.
