There is a folder on my desktop that just won't go away. I deleted it and then emptied it from the recycling bin. Then like 20 min later it just reappears on the desktop. Someone suggested i use a program called unlocker but that doesn't work either. How do i go about getting rid of this folder? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi -

Try a single-delete via cmd/DOS prompt - 1st I need to see the file name & attributes
START | type cmd.exe | RIGHT-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Administrator | the black cmd/DOS screen appears - paste this in (to paste, right-click at top of DOS screen, select Edit, select Paste):

Code:
dir "%userprofile%\desktop\*.*"  /a /q /r /s > %temp%\d1.txt & start notepad %temp%\d1.txt
A notepad will open - paste the contents into your next post.

Regards. . .
