More about : windows folder pinaplex September 15, 2008 9:21:54 PM did you reformat the hard drive when you did your install? there shouldn't be a folder like that if the entire hard drive was formatted Best solution br3nd064 September 15, 2008 10:46:56 PM Share It sounds like you didn't re-format completely. If you haven't loaded too much on it already, I'd re-install again (making sure to re-format completely).
