    there's this stupid folder that recently appeared on my desktop. it has no name, when i try to delete it or move it nothing happens. when i right-click, it just gives me the explore option, but clicking this option does nothing. when i try to open it, nothing happens either. i started using bittorrent and azureus a few weeks ago, does that have something to do with it? what could it be, it's driving me nuts!

    See how this goes>>>

    Deleting files - Access Denied Error

    Just open NOTEPAD and then click on "OPEN". Navigate to the file in the little Notepad "explorer" window and right click on the file and delete it.

    OR this

    Explorer.exe in XP has a bad habit of wanting to hang on to files, even when you have finished using them - therefore when you try to delete the file, XP will say "Access Denied".
    This error occurs more often when working with media files - mp3, avi, mpeg etc.
    TIP:
    Close all open applications.
    Open a command prompt and navigate to the directory with the offending files.
    Then open the Task Manager and click on the Processes tab. select "explorer.exe" under Image Name. Click "End Process".
    That will leave you with only the command prompt and the task manager running.
    Now at the Command Prompt, its time to delete the file(s). Using the DEL command. Example c:>\movies\DEL movie.avi
    Now the files are deleted, go to the task manager and click on the Applications tab. Click the "New Task" button. in the dialog, type explorer.exe and click OK.


    For folders the command is 'rd'.
