    Hello,

    I Dare Everybody Here To Create A New Folder In His Windows, Wherever..

    ex: In The Deskop!

    And Name It As 'con' Without The ' '

    But In Windows XP, Not Vista.. Because I Didn't Try It There :D

    If You Could Do That, I'll Pay You :D
    Edit: A Bonus From RiverWire Too :D

    Regards,
    Iearn-Money

    Its not a random issue

    The word "con" is a reserved word from the old DOS days which means Console. It is blocked from use in Windows as a folder name. Although its now released in Vista

    I believe it was reserved so they could possibly use it again in the future, remember XP was the first stage of getting rid of a DOS platform as such.
