A while ago some messages expressed disapproval with Windows Me, and I'm  
curious as
to what the dissatisfaction is all about.
For myself, I've noted that a neighbor's computer using WinMe seems to have  
a problem
with a hidden directory on the C:\  drive,  named    _RESTORE\TEMP    (note 
underscore).  The problem is that the directory gets loaded with a  humongous 
amount of
*.CPY files the longer WinMe is running.   
Anyone else seeing this problem?  (use the msdos window in WinMe  to observe 
directory and files, or a WinMe boot floppy)
The main question is whether the directory is created by WinMe or is some  
kind of virus
or spyware addition, exploiting a vulnerability....?
