    im using windows xp pro sp2
    since yesterday Im facing this wired problem
    I bought a new computer just two weeks ago
    yesterday i was trying to play couple of songs from a specific directory
    the first was played the second didnt i checked out why it didnt play the second song
    apparently that winamp crashed and taking the whole operating system down with it
    after restarting I went to that directory and to my suprise found out its empty
    (got no little brothers to blame)
    anyway i got pissed and tried to delete it
    and then an error msg popped out "windows cannot erase "name" directory isnt empty"
    I tired everything
    ad aware, mcafee 2006 antivirus full scan , even format and reinstall windows all over again
    nothing brought back the files
    another problem is that the computer acting very slow all of a sudden
    thought its a virus yet mcafee found nothing

    suggestions anyone??

    I forgot to mention
    these mpz i played were played at least 10 times before
    and nothing happend
    so its hard for me to believe that they are the source of the problem
    besides, these softs u recommended on arent even near solving my problem
    maybe you miss understood me
    im not trying to delete the folder im trying to udnerstand where my files are?
    why it takes 2 seconds to enter this empty directory?
    and what the hell is this wired error msg i get?
    deleting this folder is not the solution im looking for.

    Could be hard drive failure. Run chkdsk.
