I have a folder on my desktop that I can not delete permanently. I've attempted to rename it, and then delete. All fails - it reapears upon start up.

All the contents that were in there are permanently gone, but the folder keeps reappearing.

Any help?

TIA,
Greg

it was just files for a CD for my son - music mp3s and some photos... and I think the "Print CD" file that I saved to the folder.

no - "ripped" from a CD (CD created from iTunes - wanted to balance the audio better)

try this simple command prompt command:
start>run>cmd
cd "put your desktop directory"
issue command: del /f /a:h /a:s "filenmae"

good luck
