Pinball folder

In reply to: pinball

That folder is a part of Windows. MS frowns on deleting any Windows folders. Out of curiosity, why do you want to delete it? You may need it if you install the MS pinball game. It's only 2.4 mb and want save you much hdd space.

You Are Referring to XPs' Space Cadet Pinball Game??

In reply to: pinball

If not, please give Full name of product game, & it's company name of supplier (E-Games or GameHouse or?). If it is the one that comes with XP, then it's OK and leave alone. Others (3rd party) may contain Adware/Spyware or back doors and may or may not continue to work if you use Spybot Search & Destroy 1.4 to remove the Spyware.
Spybot 1.4:

The newer the program, the less likely to continue working (little devils are always finding better ways to bury it). Happy
