Go to Start>Search>All files and folders - then type in WINDOWS and hit Go.

May be worth seeing if by mistake Windows file has been dragged to another folder. I assume you have done the usuao "search" in Windows Explorer?

i think i have been infected with a virus "system32ycrc.exe" it has hidden the windows folder to stop me deleting the file,trouble is it runs all the time so it wont let me delete it.

Have you tried deleting it in Safe Mode?
