I have read countlesss posts in the last two days about this issue. They all touch on the issue that I am having but no one seems to have the exact problem that I do.
When I try and run an .exe file it tells me "The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable." The only problem is that it is a brand new install of windows, with a full format and chkdsk with repair performed.
The fix that refers to using the "Merge" option I get the same message by the way.
I get "Access denied" in DOS mode.
But it allows me to start "Notepad" and "Explorer" no problem.
Please help me if you can, I have been down for over a week now and I really need to finish some work for some clients.
Thank you in advance,
