XP recreates them also because they are considered "system folders".
no cookies go into "downloaded program files", which is used for Yahoo stuff, shockwave flash, etc. The others aren't always "useless" also, and don't hurt you to remain there. W98 is skippy enough without doing this kind of stuff, learn more before you do it or we'll hear again from you with problems generated.
W98 won't find the My Documents folder and you'll always have to point to a new place to "save in".
Yes, there are some like "my pics", "my music", "my ebooks" (with Adobe), safe to delete.
Finding "zero byte" files and folders to delete is mostly a waste of time and potential trouble.
I have quite a number of useless folders (i.e: They
have no files), which I delete and then they re-appear
The folders are:
@ C:\ My Documents (and ofcource: My Pictures)
Downloaded Progarm Files (re-appears, only when
surfing the net)
Of all these, Downloaded Program Files is the real piece of cake. Many doggie sites, install files, cookies and God knows, what else though this folder (or atleast leave a foot-print in this folder)
I have tried deleting the enteries in the Registery
(i.e.: Regedit), with no luck.
I Will appreciate, if someone can recommend a antidote
for these poisons, especially the 'Downloaded Program
I am almost certain that there is an *.EXE file, which
generates these folders (e.g.: at C:\WINDOWS >>
will create some of these folders). I have deleted
this file on my computer.
