Blue letters

by PudgyOne / January 10, 2007 10:11 AM PST

I have noticed in the past couple of days, I have folders that sone of the file names are in blue text. They have been there for a while. I also noticed that the newer ones are black.

Is this ok?

Does XP do this after a set time?

Windows XP SP2
Dell Inspiron B130

Avast

C W Shredder
Spybot S & D
Ad-Aware SE
AVG Anti-Spyware
Windows Defender
Spyware Blaster


Thanks,


Rick

That was simple enough


The files in blue have the box checked to compress the file.


I have only had Windows XP since August. I guess it happens after a set period of time. Everything is working great, just wondered why the blue lettering.


Thanks again,


Rick
