    Empty Folders in Program Files (XP SP2)

    Hello, I was just installing a shortcut when I noticed a folder called "microsoft frontpage". I've never used frontpage nor to my knowledge installed it. The folder has a subfolder called "version3.0" and that has another one called "bin". Three folders in all - apparently empty. I tired to delete them all but Windows won't let me claiming they are in use. Does anyone know what is going on here and how I can get rid of these ghost folders?

    Thanks,

    Chris (Hunt)

    Those folders are created by Windows and not FrontPage. They are also covered by Windows file protection so if you did manage to delete them they would be re-created.

    Thanks Tony,

    I guess I'll leave them alone. Kind of irritating to have them there, though.
