Files in folder Windows.old in Vista
I have installed Ultimate on a Business version and then received the
Windows.old folder. I want to delete it but have found same working files in
old path than in the new. It appears that Windows updates the working files
in both folders. Are they mirrored or copies. I changed the name of one file
in old - corresponding file in the new folder received the same name. If I
delete files from Windows.old will they be deleted from current folder too?

I'm using Microsoft Money 2005 Deluxe edition on a Windows XP computer..
I was able to set up my bank CD's ok, but when I type in the interest, Money
treats it as a cash transaction, and doesn't update the balance of the CD to
reflect the interest payment.
The original amount is treated as an investment, but not the interest
A $20,000 CD with an interest of $31.48 paid at the end of the month, still
has the balance of $20,000.
Does anyone have a suggestion?

I have a desktop pc with Office 2003 and Vista Home premium system. I am

all my old files were generated by office 2003. Will the office 2007 be able
to access and process these old files? Also, can I uninstall office 2003

Just upgraded Office from 2002 (XP) to 2003; a couple of questions arise:
1) Outlook icon is no longer on the desktop?? this wasn't just a shortcut;
used to be able to use it to set profile options; have to do this from
control panel now?
2) Every folder in Outlook (including public Exchange folders) is sorted by
"Sent date", as intended, but now they are also "Group by" (View-Arrange
by-Show in Groups). I hate this, and I can turn it off one folder at a time,
but I have > 200 public folders!! How can I turn this foolishness off for
all folders in one swoop?

From what I know the setup of the Exchange server is a standard install and

If you didn't create a backup last time, make sure that you do next time.
In your "Save As" dialogue, "General Options" comes from the Tools option
