Re: Show me your desktop (JulieK)

Julie, I remember your problem from several days ago and by looking at your desktop, I saw the culprit.  Somewhere down the line for whatever reason you downloaded "PW1118.exe" to your desktop.  PW1118.exe is a self-extracting file used to install Win32s.

When you ran PW1118.exe by doubleclicking it, it extracted its contents to the folder it was residing in at the time.  This folder was your Desktop folder and that's why you have all those unknown files - it was treating your desktop as a temporary folder.  Nothing installed when you did this, it just extracted a bunch of stuff.  To attempt to install Win32s, you would have needed to run the Setup.exe which would have been extracted with all those other files.

Try it yourself.  Create a folder and copy PW1118.exe into it.  Go in and doubleclick it and what it did inside that folder, it did to your desktop.

You should be able to delete those files.

 Stevie, I didn't want you to think that I didn't appreciate your input. I have remedied the problem to some extent. I still have to try your suggestion about copying PW1118.exe into a folder, but thanks again

I like that you changed all of your icons to birds. Matches the background really well.

I quickly put some of my favorite 1024x768 wallpaper files on this page.  Some are a couple of megs.  Terminator girl is there.  Want 'em, take 'em. :)
