Hi, do not know how but I have corrupted my music folder, I had it in two places tried to delete one 15GB and now I have multi sub music folders I can not delete any as this comes on screen The folder contains files names that are to long for recycle bin. I can not delete or rename. Also when I look at My Music on close down it places a folder on desktop. I have tried everything I can think of system restore works but does not change Music. Shredding music files window washer with bleach. problem remains any ideas. Will
Tried turning off user file control no joy, also tried shift/delete worked on individual albums but not on folder ie high-lite more than one album and it says "Do you want to delete Desktop this is a system file and can damage windows" deleted all one by one. created new music folder but every time I use it or start up a folder is placed on desktop. same problem can not delete file name is to long. any suggestions.
Having looked at my problem it seems Window media player 11 is th problem just inserted CD media player started up and placed music folder on desktop when I open folder click on my music it opens about 50 sub music folders all empty. Help

rawprawn results 1. so far changed file location to new folder on partition, has stopped folder going on desktop when using media player, but it still goes on desktop when starting up. 2. Ran sfc /scannow results found corrupt files unable to fix check cbs log, found log but unable to open. 3. properties in media player grayed out. Thanks for your help. Will
