You don't want to remove those - they're are system files. That's one reason they're hidden. They are not viruses.

oh.. ok! :)

But, are you sure they are not viruses???

Initially, when OS was newly installed (and bound to be virus free), there wasnt any such Hidden files.

Thanks for the help, and waiting.

Regards!!!

Recycler is the recycle bin. System Volume Information is where your restore points are stored, so if you ever need to restore your system to an earlier time you can do so. I can assure they are perfectly safe to have on your PC. :)

I call myself the Grammar Admin as a joke, not because I go around correcting everyone's grammar! :) I can move your post for you - I was going to move this one to the Windows XP forum, since it doesn't really belong in the introductions. Were you talking about this post?

Many Thanks, if you can do it for me !!!

regards.

Time to sleep now for me :)
