View Full Version : Windows 98: Windows Folder(s)



24-09-2001, 04:38 PM
In tidying-up a software installation on a PC it's ended up with TWO Windows folders:'Windows' with 166 files in 5 sub-folders, and 'Windows.000' with 3296 files in 181 sub-folders. Between the two, all necessary files seem to be there, with a few being duplicated. The PC seems to run OK but we're not happy about this weird re-arrangement, especially as we don't know the cause.
Can it be corrected without a complete uninstal/re-build, & if so, how?
Our 4 other PCs with identical software suites are OK.

What software was it? If it was a registered one contact their technical support. Or you could try copying_ all the files in windows.000 to windows folder in dos or something (I would back up the windows folder first if you have room)
