I'm new to this forum, so hope I'm putting this in the right place ...

Yesterday, I was attempting to "split" an ISO file using Cutter4. Never did this before. So, anyway, followed the onscreen prompts & all "seemed" to be going OK - it made a new folder on my desktop where the split up files would go, things were running, etc. All of a sudden, the whole computer locked up. Couldn't get the task manager up at all. Rebooted the system. Then, tried to access the folder & it wouldn't open -- system locked up again (had the hourglass thingy going); did a reboot. Tried to drag the file to the recyle bin ... system locked; reboot. Next, tried to do a right click on the file (wanted to see what the properties were) ... system locked up again; did a reboot. Did a system restore - folder still on desktop (knew it would be). Restored back to the point I was at. Have tried using Delete FXP files and GiPo@MoveOnBoot -- could not open the folder to get at the files (if there are any files in there). So, once again -- system locked up (with the hourglass thingy); reboot. I have deleted the Cutter4 program from my system. Thought it might be running somewhere trying to split these files (even though I looked through the Task Manager & can't find anything like it running in the background). Tried to get rid of this folder -- again, the same scenario.

I did a virus scan on the ISO file before I tried to split it & all was fine. And, today I tried to download something using FlashGet. Well, it's setup to send all downloads to C:\downloads. I tried to change it so the download would go to my desktop - everything locked up again! This has never happened before, so I'm assuming that the rotten folder is causing this to happen.

Please, I really need help!
