A folder was being shared over a local area network. After it was no longer needed the share was turned off. Now the folder is locked and I cannot open/delete/move this folder. Or access the information in it. I've tried everything but it doesn't work

Also tried using a program called "unlocker 1.8.5" but that did not work. I am on windows xp and I am admin. Safe mode also doesn't work. This is not spyware related as the problem can be reproduced on different machines.


Huh yeah, whatever ^^

Hmm that surprises me quite much that Unlocker didn't work. However, you may try deleting the folder by booting on another system (floppy disk or livecd).


I didn't make it!
