Default How to delete a certain folder.

Hey fellas,

I ran into some trouble. Using a program called Spin It Again, I created a folder on my desktop.

Then when I checked it later, it turns out that the folder is not a folder after all. I cannot rename it, or delete it. Any file that I place into disappears.

When I try to delete it, I get a message about it being stored on the HDD, but I know the location is Desktop.

Is there any way to delete it?

Try this:

Basically you just end explorer.exe, and try to delete it with the command prompt.

If that doesn't work, try this:

First of all, the desktop is even stored on the HDD

What is Spin It Again? Sounds dodgy.

It isn't dogey at all. It is certified, and is a great way to record stuff from LP to the computer.

http://www.acoustica.com/spinitagain/

That is the website, it is spyware free.

The Elder Geek way worked, thanks free.
