    I think they are in the root director, but is that C:?
    or is it C:\Windows? I'm trying to make a backup up of
    these two files and when I did a search in C: and
    C:\Windows I couldn't find them. I did a search for NTLDR
    and also a search for NTDETECT.COM in both locations but
    with no success! Can anyone tell me how to find these
    files so I can make a back up! Ohh and Show hidden files
    IS checked!

    Both are hidden files on the root of the C: partition.

    Even though you have Show hidden checked
    Those two files are also protected system files. You need to uncheck
    the option "Hide protected operating system files" box also.
