    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! :(
