Hi, I bought a new laptop and could not get it with WinXP... and while I am not a fan of the Vista Windows Explorer I can deal... but what i hate is when it deletes files for me that it thinks are dangerous.
Sometimes when I copy files from a CD or whatever, certain executable files (that I know are safe) will get deleted.
Can i turn this annoying function off ?
Or is it the Macafee mess that was installed on my laptop maybe ?
Ok... I had asked Mcafee tech support (via chat) if it was their product deleting the files... they said no. So I deleted their product, the trial that came preinstalled, (after having tech support send me a file to install..., to delete their product, what a joke).... and after I uninstalled all of Mcafee... I can unarchive the files and they all stay put.
