    Hi All,

    I'm using WinXP home edition. 2 HDD with NTFS.

    Before all of my file text were black, but suddenly one day some of them become blue. I reinstall the OS 3 times, but it doesn't help at all.

    For example, if I keep 5 file today, tomorrow or next day 2/3 of them will turn into blue.

    How to get rid of this? Dose anyone know it?

    Are you talking about hidden system files?

    Please give an example of the type of file you are having a problem with.

    This is normal behavior for an NTFS partition. The system is compressing them. If you don't want them to appear blue, you can turn that option off. Go to Tools -> Folder Options, click on the View tab, and uncheck "Show encrypted or compressed NTFS files in color".
