Hi,Unfortunately I tried all this and it didn't work. However, it gave me an idea which worked.
I went to search for all files and folders and under the advanced option it allowed me run a check to include hidden files and folders. I was then able to delete the files I had been looking for. Thanks for all the advice.

4. hit alt and T for tools. 5. go down to folder options and enter on it.6. control tab to the view tab; tab over to the list of settings and arrow down and make sure it looks like this:
Files and Folders Automatically search for network folders and printers-ON Display file size information in folder tips-ON Display simple folder view in Explorer's Folders list-ON Display the contents of system folders-ON Display the full path in the address bar-ON Display the full path in the title bar-OFF Do not cache thumbnails-ON Hidden files and folders Do not show hidden files and folders-OFF Show hidden files and folders-ON Hide extensions for known file types-OFF Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)-Off 7. then tab over to apply and enter.8. tab back through to the ok button and hit enter, and you should be good to go.
now open the folder where this file should be and try looking for it. HTH, inthane----- Original Message ----- From: LU OGBE

XP is refusing to allow me uncheck the hide hidden files option. I checked on the net for a solution and it says something about going into the registry which I don't want to attempt just yet so I don't delete or change the wrong file.
inthane I am searching for an MSN file which I have to delete for my new version of windows live to run properly. Thanks in advance
