  1. Help! Folder won't go away!


    Since yesterday I have a HUGE problem, one of my folders just refuses to leave the desktop. You can put stuff in it, but you won't get it out again. Windows says it's not to be found but IT IS RIGHT THERE! I tried several ways to get rid of it (trying to unlock the folder, maybe it was locked? No avail.) It just won't go away... Nuke WIndows and start over?

    :)
