    Hi all,

    I've been there so many times...

    Start>My Computer>C drive(or wherever Windows in installed)>Documents & Settings>User Name>Local Settings.

    Then I open a couple of folders and delete all those temp files etc.

    BUT....after a clean install and a couple of repairs later I note that the Local Settings folder that should reside within each users folder in Docs & Settings, isn't there?

    So where are they???

    Is it normal that this file is absent???

    Any thoughts on this???

    Thankyou to all in advance.....:eek:

    Go to the Folder Options "View" tab, place a checkmark in everything that starts with "Display - -", remove the checkmark from everything that starts with "Hide - -", select "Show hidden files and folders", click "Apply to all folders", then click Apply - OK.
