Thread: Delate Folder

  1. #1
    hi, i have a folder on my desktop which is called 'programs folder'. as far as i recall this is a shrtcut of the origianl in my c drive. ok, i am having problems trying to remove this from my desktop. i have right clicked on it but only get 2 options - open, and create short cut. i have tried to drag it into the recycle bin but it wont have it. i have dragged it back to its original location but it wont even go there. how can i get rid of it? and how can i confirm that it is a shortcut, i mean the files are the same as the ones in my c drive but there are a few missing in this desktop folder and the icons are slightly different. they are not just plain folder pictures/icons in the folder itself??? :helpsmile: :music1:

    Nope, I have the exact same problem with folders in my computer, I figured out that the only way to fix it is to install win xp sp1 which is has the fix. I never tried it though.

    can you rename the file?
    click on it and hit F2 then rename to
    something else then delete it

    or

    dowload spybot search and destroy
    install...
    under the tools there is a "Secure shredder"
    see if that works

    or

    try safe mode?

    do you have administrator rights?

    downloaded and tried spybot-no luck, that just removes spyware from my pc, doesnt help in actually removing folders?? unless im using it incorrectly.
    havent tried safe mode as yet but i think thats not giong to work either but i will try it. renamed the folder-no luck
