I'm running Windows ME and I'd been having some problems recently with the computer (managed to fix that) but one of my earlier solutions to the problem (a silly/over the top solution) was to reset the computer to a time that pre-dated the problem. I set it to a few months back and low and behold certain files which I thought were gone/deleted for good came back. I don't know how that's possible? I don't know where these "phantom" files reside. I'd really like to kill them PERMANENTLY. I went to the Windows folder on my harddrive and found some Backup folders but nothing in there seems to pertain to what I'm looking for. Kindly advise.
