I am running Windows XP

Whenever I attempt to open a folder with video files, I get an error. I have determined the MP4 file that is the error but I can't find a way to remove it (I have attempted to use a variety of different programs to gain access and delete the file with no success). The file is the Mythbuster file below...

Below is the error...

With in the error, it say the error is related to "C:\DOCUME~1\Alpha\LOCALS~1\Temp\b7ab_appcompat.txt"

Even when I use my FTP program to access the folder it displays a message: "List index out of bounds (0)"

I will be fine just to remove the file as I am near sure that this will solve the problem.

unlocker finds the issues... but when I attempted to "kill the process" or delete, it has gone to a small progress window and moving extremely slow... might be still working, here's hoping.

Should I "unlock" or "kill the process"??

What gives!!! Thankfully I decided to stop process... it was moving my entire drive (Slave Drive) to the recycle bin!!!! What kind of two-bit program is the Unlocker Program!! I have files on my Slave that are 8 years of research projects! Heck, I will just delete crypt folder and lose the few dozen videos versus lossing my entire slave drive content!!

I have jumped over the "corrupt zone" in the folder and save a few files... then simply deleted the entire folder with the corrupt file... problem solved. Also, remove that crazy Unlocker program.

Wow... what a mess! Any fold, that is four(4) folders deep is gone! I am so fortunate that I did a backup on an external drive earlier this week but now it is a headache to determine what is truly missing.

Unlocker is a program to avoid!! Seriously... take caution, avoid this program!
