If he can't even find his My Documents folder, then I imagine he doesn't know where his QB and PDS files are installed either.

I would try to figure out Windows Explorer first! Get some Windows lessons son!

Yeah, that is a good point there. If he doesn't know how to navigate his OS, then he shouldn't really be trying to program.
Though, I think he may be just a confused kid. I'm just speculating at this point.
Perhaps we should wait and see if he even posts another reply...

A lesson in using the DOS command line wouldn't hurt him either.
