    Having trouble updating some software, getting a message unable to copy files from Docs and Settings\me\local settings..... I have discovered there is no folder. Also- may be related; Norton AV will not auto protect or email scan,autoprotect tries to start and then shuts down, email has an error. Ring any bells?

    Running AMD 2800 1.6 Ghz 512 RAM XP home w/SP2

    The Local Settings folder is hidden. If you turn on the option to Show Hidden Files and Folders, you'll see this folder.
