These are the uninstall programs for updates you downloaded from Microsoft. They do not show up in the add/remove programs like they use to. MS decided to put the uninstalls in your windows folder instead. If you have no problems with the updates these uninstallers can be deleted from the windows folder. I burned them all to a CD just in case i ever need them.

Dear SRX660

Thanks for advice, i will remember it in the future.

Well good thing having a few HDs is that is quite simple to just format the C, activate the XP again, download the updates, drivers, ... and put the software that you actually need! Thats is! No viruses, no trojans or any other crap! (all my data is safe on other drives)

Once again, this is the best site for the comp virgins as me (and a lot of my friends), i learn here a lot. Thanks again for your advices and time.

Best regards,
