Straight to the pt. I have a :dead: corrupt folder:dead: ...It was my shared folder I used with limewire and I belive my hubby downloaded something bad that has corruted the entire folder...it's been corrput for mths now but it's really starting to bug me because I can't run defrag or some programs on my pc because of this folder....when it's clicked on or accessed in anyway it closes down the program being used...even explorer when I try to delete it, my questions is what can I do to fix and get rid of this folder? I don't know anything about dealing with this kind of situation...thanks for any help:nervous:

Run a search for process explorer in Google, it comes from SysInternals. There is likely something holding onto that folder at boot.

Might be wise to start us off with a hijackthis log as well in this thread.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
