    wierd issue with deleted files


    This doesn't happen every time i delete a file, but it happens pretty often. When i delete a file from the desktop to the recycle bin sometimes later on i will see it on the desktop again. Then i try and delete it i get a message saying try again and it never lets me. But the reason is it;s NOT the file i deleted but basically a ghost of it because if i open the recycle bin there it is. It;s both in the bin AND on the desktop, tho like i said the one on the desktop is more of less just a ghost of the real file. If i drag the one in the bin back onto the desktop the other one disappears and then i can delete the one i just restore and this time it's gone with no "ghost" of it on the desktop. What is this wackiness?

    :)

    Wierd issue when deleting files/folders


    Hey

    I got a wierd issue when i try to delete anyfile, folder or program that is installed on my windows 10 pc.

    When i try to delete a text document from my desktop:
    1: I mark the document i want to delete and press "DEL". This will make my pc freeze for about 2 seconds before it flickers black and then back again. File is not deleted and there is no error.
    2: I mark the document and i use the right click dropdown menu to use the delete option from there. Same thing will happen.
    3: Tryed using CMD to delete the folder by doing " del C:\Users\Public\Pictures\Sample Pictures" in CMD. CMD will tell me that he dident find the files.
    4: Tryed Changing promission in every single file i tryed deleting. This dident do anything.
    5: downloaded a 3rd party software called Unlucker to see if it could help me out. When trying to delete anything with it it crashes.

    Im empty... No clue what is going on and files are all over the place.
    Hope someone here has the answare to my issue.

  3. Wierd crashing issue

    TY so much. I have set it back to DDR4 3200 14-14-14-42 and all is well atm.
    My screen shows these results:

    wierd issue with deleted files [​IMG]


    Just a bit confused as the settings I had at 3600mhz CL14 Have been stable for 3-4 months now and issues just started all at once.
    Earlier, I did try 3600 CL 16-16-16 ... but it wasnt having it. Kept getting stuck at boot frorcing a CMOS reset.

    I ordered some Gskill RAM so I can see what happens.
    The set I ordered is Samsung B-Die as well, 3600 CL16. But, unlike the patriots the Gskills are on MSI and Gskills QVL list.
