    Hello,

    When I started using Windows 95 for the first time, the first thing I did
    was:

    "Delete Program Files"

    I was like: "What's all this junk doing on my computer ?"

    Fortunately somebody else was with me who said: "NOOOOOOO, That's all your
    programs !" LOL.

    He was able to "undelete it" lol ! =D

    Stupid Microsoft/Windows LOL ;) =D

    Bye,
    Skybuck =D

    I am intrigued about the way you sheet out the blame for this accident.
    About your friend undeleting the folder: Undelete programs can do only so
    and so much. You need to expect some serious damage - see your next post
    (which, by the way, should be in this first thread). I think you're looking
    at a complete re-installation of Windows.

    Great now that you have Win95 mastered
    I expect you'll be moving up to Win98 pretty soon.

    Of course Win98 does not have a cure for stupidity either...


    pretty bad of Microsoft for not having a solution.

    How do you jump to the conclusion that win95 is NOW in use? Back in "the
    day" of CP/M and just after moving to WFW, my wife did the same thing on
    Drive C on me. She meant to delete *.bak but deleted *.* instead. Undelete
    brought back every single file necessary and nothing was lost. I don't see
    why win95 would have been any different if the recovery was done
    immediately. Same for win98, actually. In use files made no difference as
    they were immediately updated anyway I imagine.
    What would 95 have been missing as long as the files weren't overwritten?
    Just curious.

    HTH,

    Twayne
