    I,m nt sure wat these hidden files do or wat kin of information they carries but I can just tell u something about removing those unwantd files.
    If u wanna see or remove such unwanted files u can select them from a list whih can b obtained by following the procedure given below.
    1.Open ""My Computer"".
    2."Right Click" on ur OS Drive(usually "C:")
    3.Select "Properties"
    4.On the "General" tab Click "Disk Cleanup".
    5.In a short while ur displayed with a list of the different types of files.
    6.Select the files u wanna delete & click "OK"

    You can also delete all the restore points except the "Most Recently"created restore points clicking the "More Options"tab & clicking "Clean up"in the "System Restore" box.

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.

    hi:

    goto
    www.lavasoftusa.com
    and get ad-aware and scan your computer for spyware that slows your computer

    also get a program called bootvis.exe
    from microsoft to boost your boot times

    also do a virus scan and defrag
