Glad that one's fixed.  Now try what I said on a regular folder and not a system folder like My Computer.

I appreciate your help enormously............. ;)

3. The display is 1900 X 1200………which is real small since I use an external USB  Logitech comfy laser KB & mouse………When I  try decreasing the resolution……the desktop icons become distorted & names which are underlined get blurred/darkened…… on reboot I get a windows message displayed that 1900x 1200 is the ideal resolution for this machine so please change…..how can I fix this issue…..How can  I decrease the resolution , without  destroying the awesome display /colors/fonts?

4. My Sony Vaio has great 1680 X1050 display……….easy to read etc………...desktop icons, fonts all have a super display despite that it uses an Intel graphics accelerator vs. this which has a 256 MB graphic card.

5.  How can one view the total Commit Charge/Page file size, on the bottom of task manager as in XP?

What graphics card do you have on the system with the resolution problem?

Are you using the Windows Driver for it or the Vendors Driver?

Well thanks for the compliment, but I only knew how to change the folder views... the disk cleanup problem was a solution from other people.    ;D

So you have an NVidia gpu...   What model?  Also... Vista 32bit or 64bit?
