i have some movie files that wont play or let me delete.

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.

any ideas?

if you have ownership ok.
But if your not the computer admin it probley won't work anyways.
if you are.

Try control + alt + delete, and delete the files thru that.

We here at GeeksToGo will not assist you with issues relating to copied, pirated, or in any other way stolen programs. It is a direct violation of our TOS (Terms Of Service) to offer any assistance in this matter.

GTG does not assist in issues with P2P problems except for the removal of the programs pursuant to the Terms Of Use. This thread will be turned over to a Administrator and closed according to the reasons stated above. Please be aware that GTG will help to rid your system of P2P programs if you choose to do so by starting a new topic and asking for assistance. For future information please read the Terms Of Use in the link at the top of forum. The reason we don't support P2P is because of the law and risk of infection possibly caused by the files downloaded. A great many of these files have infections in them and will cause in some cases your system to become unusable.

If you have any problems with this please contact a Moderator or an Admin...
