    There are some empty folders that I can't delete from my hard drive. I've had this problem before, but they always delete properly after I restart my computer.

    As for these 2 problematic folders I'm talking about, they were created by myself, so it can't be spyware causing this problem. I get this error message whenever I try to move, rename, or delete it, "Cannot move file: Cannot read from source file or disk."

    Can anyone help me? Thanks.

    Make sure that you do not have the folder open in an Explorer type view.
