Unhappy Folder can't open :(
Hey guys, I have a folder in My Documents that doesn't open up (other folders in my computer works fine). I double click on it and it makes that clicking sound and flashes for a sec but nothing opens up.

I can only look at what's in the folder by using Word 2007 then open and select all files. I scanned it with AVG and there's no virus. Most of the stuff in there are not downloaded, it's mainly documents which I typed on this computer, and the few things that have been downloaded I have opened before and there never seemed to be a problem until recently :/

I made a copy of the folder to an external hard drive and funnily that opens up :/ I tried to delete the original folder in my documents but it says folder in use and won't let me delete it.

I'm not sure what has happened? Please help!

Right click on Drive C and choose Properties > Tools tab > Check button. It will schedule a check at next reboot. Reboot computer and let the check run.
