Unhappy Folder Trouble...


I have XP Pro on my PC (see my sig) and recently, I've noticed an obnoxious problem. For some reason, a lot of folders will not delete. I get this message that they might still be in use or whatever. Then I have to logoff/restart in order to be able to delete it.

Usually its just an empty folder. I've done a spyware scan...

Default Re: Folder Trouble...

Maybe there is spyware that is using that folder after you delete the stuff. If you have to delete a bunch of folders at a time, try booting into Safe Mode and deleting them there. There will be less chance of issue when deleting.
