windows says folder doesnt exist..huh?

  1. #1

    windows says folder doesnt exist..huh? I ordered a bunch of music off amazon tonight with their new amazon music program..3 albums.

    I went to move the albums from their download location to the proper music folder..and it gives me a 'item not found' error... I go 'ok..wait..what the frak? I'm staring at the bloody thing!'

    so..I try to delete the folder...nope..same error.

    rebooted, tried again..nope..same response.

    uninstalled the program, tried again...*bzzzt!*

    I have never even heard of this.

    edit: found a similar problem here How to delete 'Item Not Found' and followed the steps on the link brink posted which took me here Folder - Delete from Command Prompt - Windows 7 Help Forums

    followed the directions and its still telling me 'item not found'

    Hey mate,

    Did you already try the program Unlocker to see if that may be able to remove it?

    It's a false positive.

    You might see if you may be able to use FileAssassin instead.

    Oh my. How about from in Internet Explorer?

    Sure you could just leave it if you like. It's not hurting anything other than taking up hard drive space.

    edit: unlocker got blocked by both chrome and avast and just now firefox.

    new post:
    file assassin no go.

    I'm not seeing any other anomalous activity here..its only the one folder, can I just leave it as it doesnt appear to be causing any real harm?

    I got the music out of the no space taken up, changed the folder to remind myself not to use it..see what happens over the next few days.
