I had nearly the same type of problem - Files/folders that would not delete whichever method I used -- I then used my backup programme "Acronis True Image Home" and it got rid of them quickly and efficiently - Hope this helps

i have had alsorts of virus and trojens over the years but this beats the lot it now seems if i download something i can use it i can burn what ever it is to a disk ie tunes etc but as soon as i restart the computer they have all dissapeared i hold up my hands ...luckyly i do back up all my important stuff to disc so a good wipe drive and format looks the best bet. i thank you all for your imput ........ i stand defeated
