Hide this directory: (Note: this is totally unrelated, and overrides the Hidden attribute)


Do not search or show this directory:


This is used to hide the files that actually store the IE browse history. This is always available (even after you tell IE5 to clear your cache) in the files WINDOWS\TEMPOR~1\CONTENT.IE5\INDEX.DAT and WINDOWS\HISTORY\HISTORY.IE5\INDEX.DAT and in INDEX.DAT files in subdirectorys of those folders. And to record all emails (includeing the ones you told it to delete) in Outlook Express in the files c:\program files\internet mail and news\%user%\mail\*.mbx and c:\windows\application data\microsoft\outlook\mail\*.mbx or in *.dbx files elsewhere

Make this a font directory:
