UnDELETE-able folder

  Novis 20:36 15 Aug 2005

I have a file on my keyring (and now transferred onto my PC) that I'm unable to delete. It has no size i.e. 0 bytes.

When I try to delete the folder an error message tells me the folder is not empty. I can delete the file it contains but that does not allow me to delete the folder after I have done so. The error message reads:

I:\Spy Bot\spybotsd14.exe is not a valid Win 32 application.

Any suggestions?

Great programme - unfortunately, this didn't work.

Perhaps the folder also contains hidden file(s). Set explorer to show all files, including hidden and system files - maybe another file or two will show up - change any with read- only attributes - and then try again.
