running win xp home. trying to delete some folders and files in windows explorer. i get this error message when i try to delete a particular file. i go i to the folder and look, but can't find anything... just like the error says... there's nothing there by that name. i have deleted everything in the folder except one file, a word file with a totally different name (11.29.2002_contract=FHGwebsite.doc). i cannot delete it. when i select it and hit the delete button, nothing happens. i right click on it, but all of the regular right click options are not there.. no cut, copy paste, no delete... one option that is there is open, so i open it.... word opens up, but there is no document that opens... just the blank gray screen in word. i don't get it. these folders were copied over to this notebook as a quick backup from our main pc which is running win xp pro. any ideas??? here is the error message. cannot delete 112920~1.doc: cannot find the specified file. make sure you specify the correct path and file name. i have dozens of these folders that are doing this, all of them have different files in them, but the symptoms are the same.
