"...To delete those annoying folders that Microsoft kindly gave us, you know, the ones we don't want like Xerox and Microsoft Frontpage et-al just follow these simple instructions:-
1: Do a search for a file called:-
There are actually two of them, one in C:\WINDOWS\system32 and one in C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\test
2: Rename both these files to:-
3: Restart your computer in Safe Mode with Command Prompt
4: To delete the folder "Microsoft Frontpage", Type this:-
RMDIR /S C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~1
and hit the Enter (Return) key on the keyboard.
You will be asked "Are you sure (Y/N)"
just hit the "Y" key on the keyboard and begin step "4" again but with a different folder address.
If you are unsure of the DOS style name of the folder you want to delete, type this:-
DIR /X C:
and hit the Enter key. This will give you the real name and the DOS style equivalent names of all files/folders on the root of C:
You will notice that the "Program Files" folder is called "PROGRA~1"
And if you type:-
DIR /X C:\PROGRA~1
and hit the Enter key on the keyboard, this will give you the files/folders within C:\Program Files.
You will notice the folder "Microsoft Frontpage" is called "MICROS~1"
The default address of some of the annoying folders are thus:-
C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~1 (Microsoft Frontpage)
C:\PROGRA~1\MOVIEM~1 (Movie Maker)
C:\PROGRA~1\OUTLOO~1 (Outlook Express)
BE AWARE THAT "RMDIR" IS A VERY POWERFUL AND POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS COMMAND.
Renaming SFCFILES.OLD back to SFCFILES.DLL will cause the deleted folders to return. ..."
