:upset:
I am running windows XP home edition on my 1.3gigahertz celeron with 256 Ram 20 gig HD and a 120 gig HD, anyways i just recovered from NIMDA virus and it was nice enough to infect most of my .exe files so they are deleted. My problem is, is that it will say access denied to anynew folder i try to make, wont let me delete rename anything, i have tried setting the folder permissions different on those folders and the folders above them, they just arent working, i have tried everything i know. i dont know how to upload a picture using html, i will try the attachment, but i have the error picture ready to be uploaded, please PLEASE email me if you know whats going on at [email protected]

Welcome to the board,

After the virus did you format and reinstall or are you using the same post sick system ... if you are make sure you no longer have anything in quaranteen (sp). yeah spelling could use some work but anyway ...

So your problem is just you get a denied message when you try to creat a new folder, but you can create new files, move and delete existing folders and files no problem?

no, no, i CAN create new folders and move them around etc.. i just cant mess with a certain group of files, at one time i have no idea why it hpapened both hard drives were fully on read only and i coudlnt reset the permissions i messed with a whole bunch of stuff like running a ton of defrag doing a MFT boot time defrag tons of stuff, the only thing it could be is frag guard is screwin it up i am goin to go check that right now. Otherwise nothin is running that could or would mess with it. thanks,

Those files are in use if they cannot be deleted. Try starting up in safe mode by holding F8 (Dlt or F1 I think for compaqs). This will make sure no applications are not needed boot up. Then, try deleting the appropriate files that you are not wanting.

Also, just to double check.. try searching for your win.ini file, out of curiousity, is there anything for a load= perhaps in it? Open it up in notepad to find out. Most likely norton took care of this though.
