Currently Being ModeratedJan 27, 2009 2:27 AM (in response to jmbroadus)Thanks..holding down option key did help somewhat...it eliminated some files ...but still have two pesky 'legal' files for Vietnam something...wierd. Both are legal files from CS2 Photoshop an CS2 Illustrator.
Any more ideas how to get rid of these? ThanksPower Mac G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
