Delete hidden files


Rebecca, if you want help you really have to provide details. Nobody knows what you mean by "hidden files". Here is what "Hidden Files" are in Windows: when you enter Explore, then go go Windows \ System 32 you will get a message in the Right hand part of the screen, "These Files Are Hidden....." You can choose to expose them, or leave them hidden. If you delete any of those Hidden Files you will nuke your operating system since those are very critical system files that Windows uses. I don't know if you mean those or something else.

I have deleted all visible files on my clipper - but it keeps playing 5 or 6 files which I can't delete or even see as being on the clipper. I've tried looking for hidden files but there don't seem to be...

The link below walks you through showing all hidden files and folders. Be sure you also uncheck hide system files as well.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4654744-show_hidden_files_folders

Note the hidden files may be some of the players operating system files. So once you can see them you will want to make sure that they are not the operating system files before you delete them. If you do delete the operating system files this will cause the player not to work properly.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Microsoft word 2000 is not responding


Use the Search Option, selecting all files (search hidden as well), to locate the file named Normal.dot. Once found delete or rename the file Normal.OLD. This is the template that Word uses for all documents. It not uncommon for this file to become corrupted and cause problems.

After finding this file in your computer, rename it to something else like Normal.Old or delete it completely and then retry opening word. Word should automatically recreate the Normal.dot template for you. If it works properly after renaming the template file, you can delete the old one since a new one will have already been created.

Normal.dot may be hidden so you may have to go into your Window Explorer options and change them to show hidden files and folders before doing your search

To enable viewing of hidden folders:
MY COMPUTER --> TOOLS --> FOLDER OPTIONS --> VIEW --> SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS)

Hope this information has been helpful.
