I wonder if maybe you just unchecked the "Hidden" property of the AppData
folder. On my Windows 2000 it shows as a hidden folder. Although I don't
have an XP box handy at the moment to check watch its default Hidden status

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to majordomo(at)postgresql(dot)org)
