When trying to delete some nonsense my daughter has downloaded, I get the message "Cannot delete. The file or directory is corrupted or unreadable."
I have already tried uninstalling the programme.

Any ideas how to get rid of these files?

I use Windows XP Home SP2

Thanks again, guys. Have tried all the above, but still get same message. Is there a utility out there which will delete these files?
