Need Help with Windows error

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
ok so i dled some stuff and now when i try to open the folder that the stuff is in i get a message sayi9ng that windows encountered a problem and needs to shut down the program or folder. but the wierd thing is its not just when i try to open the folder but do anything with it. if i open the search in the start menu and search for something in the folder it will also give me the message. it doesnt freeze my computer or anything, the screen just flashes and doesnt open the folder. my norton antivirus doesnt find any viruses on my comp or anything. anyone know what the problem is and how to fix it?

rather than running a full system scan i tryed scanning just the folder using norton, it got about half way through the folder and then i got the error message, i assume the error occured when it tryed to scan the specific file thats causing the problem. so if there were some way for me to isolate and delete the file that would be great. or a way to scan it in ways other than for viruses, not sure exactly what the registry is all about but could that be a problem?

Use a Linux LiveCD to get rid of the file if you know which one it is.

use this program called unlocker...install it and it will unlock the file. i would recommend deleting the whole file...youve got a worm in there...norton either wont catch it or if it does i wont get rid of it...ive had this problem a few times

ok so ive spent the last couple days trying various things to fix the problem including just ignoring it, well i defragmented my computer klast night and i think that made the problem worse because now i cant use windows media player or disk clean up, im sure theres other things too that i just havent discovered yet. basicly i cant delete the files and norton cant find a virus so i think when i get home from work at 6pm im gonna back up my music, reformat, and spend the rest of the night reinstalling programs and drivers. already looks like its gonna be a good new year lol
