first off i'm sorry if this is in the wrong place but i seriously need help. my computer is not even useable right now and i've spent over an hour trying to fix it. i have hours of projects that need to get done and i can't afford to reinstall windows, which right now it looks like i'm going to have to do.
so heres what happenend
windows 7 home premium
i downloaded a zip file that had a single mkv video at about 10MB and nothing else.
when i went to extract it i got an error saying windows has crashed and has to restart, but then it happened again, and again and was a never ending loop that lasted about 15 minutes before i shut off the computer.
after turning it back on, same thing. Then i went into safe mode, in safe mode it does not happen so i figured i'd just erase the files and it'll be fixed.
So when trying to erase, rename or move, windows gets stuck on discovering files and never changes.
when trying to use command prompt to erase them i get "the system cannot find the file specified. and iv'e tried and rechecked over 100 times now.
I can open a command prompt inside the folder but same thing, system can't find the file specified.
So as far as i can tell, the files don't exist, but they show up there and i'm 99.999% sure thats whats causing the issue.
I really hope someone here can help, and fast. I'm literally going to fail 3 projects if i can't access my computer today, and reinstalling windows is pretty much out of the question as i just don't have time to do it.
so someone please please please help me.
