Hello again all you helpful people. I have a small problem that I thought I would ask for help with. I created a folder on my desktop recently of some mp3's. Once I was done burning them I tried to delete the folder from my desktop, but it keeps reappearing. It always has a new Creation day as well. Please help me delete this monster for good. thanks in advance, Mike

ps I have Win XP

how many files are in folder did you try to delete each file cause it could just one file that doesnt want to delete

heres a program to try

if you cant delete folder then delete eac file

if any file doesnt want to delete then rename it and try using unlocker again

thank you for your reply. The folder is empty, all files inside were deleted after I burned them. Now I can't get rid of the folder and if I delete it, it re-creates itself back on the desktop. Any ideas?
thanks!

Hello again! I've tried all the suggestions above and the folder keeps reappearing on my desktop every few days. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Mike
