Did as you requested, but in a slightly different way. I cannot get to My Computer from Start, but I can double click on the My Computer on the desktop and get into C drive. There is no folder named Windows, but there is a folder Winnet and there are alphabeticall listings of a whole whack of things....but no prefetch. I also looked in Program files and the folders Install Scheild/Uninstall Information and Windows Update are all faintly coloured-not the typical yellow.

Have several problems, including Malware, lost heading in my "Add/Remove Programs" for IE 6, and am unable to install Java. I need Java for work and use Firefox, so this is the problem I would like to address first. It was difficult to get the program on my desktop using 'manual download' from Sun Micro site, but have it now. I have tried to follow their instructions for a fix...by using "Custom Install" and changing the directory, but that didn't work. I get the Message Error 1722 which states...there is a problem with Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected.
