Hello: Why  do you  have to delete  them  often? Do they  do  something  to 
your  hard drive?

  Marcus,

  Even though you carbon copied this list, I have not seen any response to your 
question, so I will make an attempt just in case you are still waiting.

  I run on an XP box, and this is what I did to show the hidden files.
  Go to Control Panel.
  go to Folder Options.
  You start on the General tab.  Shift tab and arrow to the View tab.
  On that page is a treeview that includes a line whether or not to display 
hidden files.  Change it as needed.
    Go to the OK and press enter.

    I find that temporary Word files accumulate, so it is a good idea to delete 
those periodically.

    Hope that helps.

    Wayne

    Hi all,

    When checking the number of files I have in a folder on my C drive, I got 
this message:
    87 items, plus one hidden

    How do I find out what the hidden item is?

    Marcus
