Nearly all of them

In reply to: where do these files belong?pleaseeeee

appear to be files normally found on a windows bootdisk (floppy disk)......

On a harddrive, most of them would be in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\Command folder. Only a few of them are ones normally found in the root folder of C:.....so take your list and see if these files are already located in those folders and if they are, don't overwrite them by trying to copy those files to those folders. If you print out the list ahead of time, you can make notes next to each one to show the location of where you have files of the same name on your harddrive since you say you have quite a few but we aren't sure if you mean duplicates all over the place, and we can give more advice about what to do with them.

Where did you originally find the files that you listed?
