      Duh. Never occurred to me. Actually, I found mine in All Users.WINNT.
      All Users was empty. Boy, do I miss Win95! I've clung to 2K forever.
      Tomorrow I'll get a new machine with XP. Brace yourselves. There may
      be a lot of screaming and swearing! Also questions beginning "How do
      I turn off...", "How do I get rid of...." and so on. ;-)

      Thanks a bunch, Alec!
