I have tried to delete these folder-files with the Malwarebytes file deleter and was unsuccessful. They will also not delete when I boot from my Hiram's MiniXp boot disk - when I boot with that I can access C just fine, incidentally. Just not with Windows XP that's installed on C.
I have done disk checks to mske sure the drive's not hurtin' but they all came up error-free.
Could anyone shed any light on this problem? As soon as I find a portable HD to shunt my data off my computer with I am probably just gonna format C and upgrade to Windows 7 64 Bit anyway but I have no idea when I will be able to obtain the portable HD so I may have to depend on getting Windows XP fixable somehow - meaning that I also must solve this Access Denied problem first. If any kind soul answers this post I would deeply appreciate if you'd mail a quick note to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get word of it by mobile and get to a computer with internet and read the post/reply to any questions.
Thanks in advance
