    Um, what in 7 folder? Do you mean the windows directory? have you upgraded from a previous OS and have a windows.old folder?

    Hi

    My Windows folder is 18.2 Gigs and has 77,410 files in it.
    That's with no temp files or anything else extra, only 1 Gig is fonts.
    I don't know what is in mine that isn't in ZigZag's.

    Mike
