Oh. OK. I am less confused now. Thank you for your patience. I've never
encountered this thing called windows management instrumentation before so
I'm starting with a knowledge base of zero (other than what I glean from
google and learn from you from your kind efforts).
I right clicked on the WinXP SP2 "My Computer", pressed "Manage",
"Services and Applications", and right clicked on "WMI Control",
"Properties" which then said "Connecting to Windows Management" and

But my D: drive is almost wholly empty (except for something hidden called
"System Volume Information" and "MSOCache".
Do these tell us anything?
