Hi,
I'm new here so if I mess up, please forgive.
The above and some other files showed up in C root after I went into "Stand By" mode. I was able to get rid of hiberfil by disabling hibernate and rebooting but the others all stayed and, when I search for answers, I keep getting references to making a floppy boot disk because people have lost one or more of the above and can't get back into windows. Now I'm afraid to shut down for fear or this. Anyway, do these files appearing in the root of C represent such a threat? Should I move them? Leave them alone?

Any advice for an aspiring old geek? :whistling:

Using XP on a Toshiba Satellite Laptop.

Thanks

Ron

Leave those files alone, they're supposed to be there.
If you don't touch the files, you have no need to worry.
