    Here is a very, very long thread on, mostly, "that" folder.

    On reading the above thread I concluded that....

    1. It is part of XP.
    2. It cannot be deleted.
    3. It is normally empty.
    4. It is harmless.
    5. I have no idea what it does.

    I have it on my XP and it is empty. I am as bewildered as you.

    Anybody shed any light on this folder?
