    The font on some of my directories (coincedentally the C: drive and a few other not wanting to be shared drives) are blue. The rest are black.

    what the hell... did i get hacked and is that some sort of a mark or something? I know nothing of that kind of shit.

    How do i change it.

    How can i check if I've been leached?

    Im running Windows XP Pro

    It's probably just compressing old files that aren't being used.

    Yep, its compressed files/folders. Nothing to be worried about.

    Does anybody know how to un-compress these files?

    If you must uncompress them, since you can still access the directory in question, you right-click the folder and click the Advanced button. Then uncheck 'Compress contents to save disk space' and click OK. Click OK again and select whether you want the change to affect only that folder, or all of the sub-folders as well then click OK.
