I went through the whole thing to get access to the system volume information folder (clicking show hidden folders, etc.) but for some reason no matter what i do when i click on that folder a window pops up that says "system volume information is not accessable access is denied" and the properties also read "0 bytes" anyone know what the deal is?

That is a normal thing. The files are not accessable thru anything you do. The only way I have seen them accessed is thru System Restore.

I've actually accessed them once before, i had a problem with a virus or a worm in there and went in and deleted certain files, do you get the same error message if u tried it?
