OH!!! FOR ALL YOU OUT THERE, IF YOU GET A PROBLEM WITH NORTON STORING YOUR FILES IN "NPROTECT" FOLDER - I FOUND THE FIX
GO TO COMMAND AND TYPE IN

rmdir /s \\?\C:\RECYCLER\NPROTECT

(you can replace "c:\" with any drive letter name)

THIS GOT RID OF 5.5GIG ON MY C DRIVE AND 30GIG OFF MY D DRIVE

This is the fix that I've been looking for. Hope it helps you and others too!!

I've been using this PC after the fix perfectly. So the fix is perfect!!

Also I would like to know something about RAM upgrading...But firstly I'll tell you my system details:

P4 2.4ghz (Northwood)
Ram #1 : PC2100 256mb
Ram #2 : PC2300 256mb

As you can see, the RAM modules are mixmatched (PC2100/2300) to make 512mb...So is it worth upgrading this RAM to 2 of the same PC2700 256mb (=512 mb)??
Or even 2 of PC2700 512MB (=1 gig) ??

Is it even worth it for this old PC (2 years old)...I would imagine it was best to just save this £100 and use it to build a PC a few months later??

Thanks for looking!
