Oh, I love Vista (Not!)

Ok, here’s my dilemma. I’m an administrator and I uninstall a program. It tells me during the uninstall that it has left bits and pieces behind in my Application Data folder. Ok, so I’d like to get rid of these. Problem is I can’t see the folder and when I opt to see hidden system folders, I can’t open it.

Yikes? Well not totally a problem. You see your

C:\Users\\Application Data

folder really isn’t a folder – it’s a shortcut – that’s why its icon has the bent arrow on it. It is really a shortcut to a real folder – called:


and that folder is totally accessible just by clicking on it.

So, you can clean up after programs if you know where to look!
