WINDOWS XP. 2 HARDRIVES. 512 Ram. 2.5Ghz.

I am having problems with my 160Gg Seagate slave drive. Most of the media and that I have downloaded will not open with windows media player or several other media players that I have tried. When I try to open it with windows media player they say something about not having access. Also, If I try to organize my files into subfolders I will not be able to open them once I move them. This goes for any type of file: once I move them “access is denied”. Recently I have tried to open some of this media that is giving me trouble and it is playing a completely different file. For example: I try to open a song and one of my mpegs start playing.
All of this media once worked fine, but suddenly it just started messing up. I did chkdsk and there are no bad sectors. I am logged on as the admin as well. What is going on!!??? I would greatly appreciate any help, for this problem has been going on about 5 months now and is pissing me off.

hey gerryf, thanks for ur post. unfortunately my problem still persists. My options are a little different and i cant follow the instructions as u provided. My understanding is that u need to have xp pro to have the security options as u described them, i have xp home. Sorry, maybe i should have specified that. when i go to the sharing and security of the parent folder there is a general, sharing and customize tab. There is no security tab....... This is where im stuck.
p.s. it tried to put screenshot of my folder options, but i dont know it worked.

gerryf, i did as u suggested and ran the chkdsk/ r. when it got to around 100% it shut down, i rebooted and it said chkdsk complete. There is nothing telling me whether there were errors found or not: should there have been? Also, my "access denied" problem still persists. Any suggestions are great, Thanks.

The "access denied" problem might occur if the file you try to open is already in use by some application. Have you noticed any unusual thing having on your comp, like if you're on network and the outgoing traffic is always on, even if you are not doing any thing. Then there is chance that your comp may be infected by viruses. Get it checked.

the security option is available in SAFE mode

While starting your computer tap the F8 key once every second during the memory count up, or during the system spash screen where you see the system maker's name (HP, COMPAQ, DELL....etc.)

This will result in a text based menu. Use the curors/arrorw keys to navigate to SAFE MODE and hit enter.

choose a file now....right click as explained above

ok guys....so i do have viruses that my updated Norton antivirus was not recognizing. I did a scan with Ewido and it turned out i had twenty two viruses. Ive since deleted them and did a Kaspersky online virus scan and it turned up even more viruses that Ewido nor Norton picked up. I also did a online Panda scan that picked up more viruses and delted them also, But Kaspersky is telling me i have 22 viruses. So, how am i supposed to delete these viruses? Here is a Link to my Kaspersky log.

Ive also cleared alot of malware with Adware and Spybot, and deleted a few things thru hijackthis.
