    :eek: Not really,but I asked a question about a compressed zip folder and the one feed back I got seemed too hard for me to handle so I'll try it again. I created a compressed zip folder to keep my files private because with a compressed folder you can put a password on it.It all was working fine 'till for some stupid reason I dragged and dropped my password protected compressed zip folder into another folder with out removing the password first.I've tried every thing I know to get it out of the other folder including the Extract File Wizard,{which suppose to let you remove the pass word}, but all I get is Access Denied.Some one needs to be brave and try this and see how you make out and Please let me know. :eek:

    have you tried moving it in safe mode, or through the command prompt?

    first off, you should never post your email into a forum....opens one up to all sorst of unwanted spam....

    next on the agenda, to reboot into safe mode, assuming you have a recent-ish windows OS, reboot, and tap f8 until you get all sorts of options like 'safe mode', 'safe mode with networking', etc....choose safe mode, then try to delete it. if that doesn't work, you can try the command line, which is a bit more complicated....

    but let us know how the safe boot works.

    Another way if it doesn't work.

    Start > Run

    type in:

    msconfig

    Then click the BOOT.INI tab and under Boot Options, select /SAFEBOOT, then click OK, it will ask you to restart the comp, click Restart.
