Invisible Files
Loaded some printer software for an OKI 8iM - very bad!!
Had printer problems and took whole lot off computer, not using printer at all now (not connected)
Problem is I cannot delete loaded software, it comes up in Sherlock as "invisible files" that can't be deleted. (these are not visible in normal extensions folder)
How am I able to delete these?, running on Imac OS 8.5.
Thanks
Jenni :eek:

Download ResEdit, from http://www.versiontracker.com/morein...?id=417&db=mac . Launch the application, and then choose "File/Folder Info..." Select the invisible file and clear the Invisible box. Save changes.

If you go into Sherlock, click on the Custom button, and then, in the lower right block of the window that comes up, check the "is invisible" box, Sherlock will let you see invisible files, and you can then move them to the Trash from Sherlock.
