    Hi all!

    A bit of possible trouble in paradise. When in Control Panel > Internet Options > General Tab > Settings > View Objects > brings up the downloaded program files...are these the files used by some site to open something or do something...do I have any of that right...or what are these?? Well no matter...all but 1 of these files, show the status "damaged". Why? Maybe you can tell me cause I don't know! But the question I have for you is :
    Can I delete these files? How? Just R.Click and then Delete...or because of this damaged status thing...gonna be a problem to get rid of?

    Just trying to keep my 'puter all clean and organized as well as I can...thanks for your help!!

    Parrot---Lee (ann);) :D

    You can delete them. If required in the future they can be easily downloaded.
