I d/loaded a file which turned out to be a VTS_01_2 mpeg file [1,048,544kb], which I can't play. But I cannot delete it! It goes through the process but never progresses. I left it "deleting" for 3 hours, but it wouldn't delete. It then manages to turn the screen a misty white and I then cannot open any other Windows file unless I re-boot. I've scanned the actual file 3/4 times, and my entire hard drive and there seems to be no virus. So how the hell do I delete the damn thing?
VoG -- d/loaded 'Unlocker' and it reported that it couldn't find an unlock handle, but did I want to delet it. I clicked on delet,and it moved it to the recycle bin - but the bin has been trying to delete it for last 14 minutes! Shouldn't take that long should it?
pimpers - I thought of that and will try it if deletion unsuccessful.
Restart you computer into safe mode and remove/delete the folder,
Reboot into SAFE MODE
1/Click Start and then click Turn Off Computer. 2/In the Turn Off Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK. 3/As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8 repeatedly. 4/Use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode, and then press ENTER. 5/If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER. Note: If Windows launches before you can choose a safe mode, restart your computer and try again PS/ Sometimes it maybe the F5 key
