Interesting! Is this a system that was originally Windows 2000 and has
been repeatedly upgraded? Otherwise, it's unusual any more to have a
Windows directory called C:\WINNT.
Explorer on the newer systems (XP and above) hides, by default, the
contents of the Windows system directory. You can adjust that option in
Explorer, in Tools, Folder Options, View.
