i have a folder on my desktop that i keep most of my video files in.
there are over 40 video files in the folder. mostly .avi files and some .mp4's to so its not just a .avi problem.
they all worked fine up until about a week ago. these are movies and clips ive had on my computer for a long time and have played them all several times with no problems.
i can open the folders and view the files fine, but they will not play or even let me delete them.
also cannot move the folder.
when i try to open with media player it says -
"Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct."
i also have power dvd,and it says- "Access is denied." error code 80070005.
and if i try to open with quicktime says - error-36: an I/0 error occurred.
if i try to copy a file or move it, it says- access is denied. make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use.
Ive been searching on internet for how to fix this problem and have tried a few things.
it does the same thing in safe mode.
there's only one user on this computer.
i have ownership of the files.
also other video files will play just nothing in this folder.
i have ran supper anti spyware, malwarebytes, avast, avg, registry booster, and some online scans nothing has helped.
