98SE C:\WINDOWS\UserData; What is it?

  Valvegrid 18:21 28 May 2003

This folder contains 32 other folders, only 4 of the folders have anything in them like this:
oWindowsUpdate[1].xml All the other folders are empty.

I only ask because I've never noticed this before and I have been using 98SE for years, maybe it's me, "can't see the wood for the trees".

This is information about you or your computer. The Windows Update is so that Windows update knows what to look for when you go to Microsoft updates page

Thanks for your reply. So it needs 32 folders to complete that task! Curious.

No it should only have about 4 to 6 they normally have a number you should be able to delete any empty folders it will recreate them if it need's to

Thanks, you have confirmed my thoughts.
