When you say you have restarted your computer a number of times, how exactly do you do that,
do you press restart my computer.?

Yes, I go start, restart, or shut down. I'm well aware how the chkdsk thing is supposed to work. I go to my computer, right click, properties, tools, then the check dick thing. If I don't check any of the boxes, the bar will probably scan for about 10 percent and then says something like "check the repair automatically to automatically repair files." I do that, then it says "check disc can't run while windows is in use, would you like to schedule a scan the next time you turn on your computer?" Or something close to those lines. I click the schedule scan button, and have either gone start, restart, or start, shut down. It'll just boot the computer normally and not check anything.

Hi, Ok don't press restart, press shutdown and then leave it for a couple of minutes
and then physically restart it yourself, there is a difference in what happens between them, anyway I would
just like to see if there is any change doing it this way, Thanks.

I was trying shut down last night as well, but I wasn't waiting a couple mins. But I guess I'll try that when I get home today around 2 PM pacific time. I'm afraid it might take awhile to scan and I won't have time in between my classes today. But if anyone else comes up with ideas or fixes that may work in between that I can try during my breaks, I'll try those as well.

If you think the file is "locked" by Windows you could delete from a cmd prompt or if that won't work delete from cmd prompt on boot before you even get into windows ..

if you have partitions you need to know what partition the file is on and you will need to know what directory the file is in .......
The Command Prompt would be ;
- Type CD \
(To visit the root of the drive)
- Type CD <<folder name>>
(to go to the right directory)
- Type DIR / X
(for a list of files with 'short name')
This name is usually 1 or ~ ~ 2 at the end
- Type del <<filename>> (use shortname) (from recovery console use delete)

be careful this is not reversible

I don't think it's "locked" though. I've tried that "take command thing", various other un-locker type programs and features that un-lock things in other programs. I'm hoping that check dick will fix it. I mean everything else is working fine, computer boots ok, nothing else crashes or is acting funny, just can't delete that stupid corrupted folder. Just have to try it when I get home.



Also, heres a screen of when I try to delete it.



And here is when I try to open the folder
