Question. Can I delete old files from the i386 directory? And if so, how do I know what files to delete???? I know I have many many unnecessary files saved onto my computer...virus scan tells me over 160,000!! I still have a lot of free space on my c-drive but the computer runs much slower than it did when I bought it and seems to be "dragged down" and heavy. Thanks!! Carol
I am rebuilding a laptop for my daughter. When Windows98 was the recent operating system I used to build systems by copying the 98 installation cd to C:\windows\options\cabs directory so when the the system needed a file it went directly to the installation source, I used to do this with NT40 also, but am having difficulty doing it with XP pro. The reasoning is when she is away at school if the system needs a file it goes directly to the source of the installation. So can you suggest anything?
I often do exactly what you describe. If you copy, and then install from that copy, rather than from the CD, things often just work from then on. If you install from CD, and then copy the CD to the hard drive, the first time it asks for the CD, you can ok or cancel (I forget which), and it will then prompt for the location of the file. Point it at the directory thta you copied the CD to, and it should remember that thereafter.
To post a comment on "So just what *is* the I386 directory anyway?", please return
