    I had to reinstall windows over my copy of windows because my profiles all got messed up. But after the reinstalling of windows everythign worked fine besides the normal reinstall of games and stuff.

    My problem is 1 game Folder, i open it to see all the files/folders. I CANT click on any of the files or open any of its folders. It says access denied. NOR can i delete the entire folder at once..


    Any ideas how to remove this folder? its a 600 meg folder that i want out.

    thanks
