Specs: XP pro & Vista home, 512
This pertains to my system using XPpro.

Within my system32 folder there is a folder with blue lettering below it that reads: DRVSTORE

When I open this folder there are three (3) other folders with blue lettering which are labeled with letters/numbers that do not make words.

Is this normal to have since all my other folders within system32 have black lettering below them?

The blue lettering usually means the contents of the folder have been compressed.

You can check this by right clicking the folder and selecting "properties". Under the "general" tab click on "advanced".

In here you should be able to see in the attributes whether or not if the folder has been comressed or encrypted. A check mark will show next to it.
