    What makes you think it's missing? You cannot boot windows unless there is a copy in the c:\> drive.

    If you are looking for it, but can't find it, go to Folder Options>View and make sure "show all files" is checked. Msdos.sys is a "hidden" "read only" file by default.

    hi
    can i delete those *.tmp
    when i searched for files *.tmp
    it gave me a nice long list of around 2000+ files & folders
    many of the files are of 0kb
    and certain folders r empty where some have the same content (it contains some winamp bitmaps) can i delete these folders as well
    thanx

    Sarfaraz,

    You can safely remove all files with the *.tmp extension, as well as everything in your C:\Windows\Temp folder.

    Leave folders with the *.tmp extension alone, unless they're in C:\Windows\Temp as well.

    Good luck,
