An "Owner" file (found under C:\Documents and Settings\Owner) was creasted by a virus which was removed by a virus program. The folder remained with an error message resulting every time I try to access it. It follows:

C:\Documents and Settings---------------------------
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner is not accessible.
Access is denied. ---------------

I can access properties for it and change the "Read Only" which is checked but it puts it right back with above resulting. I've recently found out by opening Hijack This that there are files under/in this file, which reads under properties that it has 0 bites and 0 files in it. I get this error when I open Hijack This which leads me to believe there truly are files in it:

HijackThis
---------------------------
An unexpected error has occurred at procedure: modRegistry_GetFirstSubFolder(sFolder=C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default)

Error #52 - Bad file name or number

Please email me at xxxxxx, reporting the following:
* What you were doing when the error occurred
* How you can reproduce the error
Windows version: Windows NT 5.01.2600
MSIE version: 6.0.2800.1106
HijackThis version: 1.97.2
This message has been copied to your clipboard.----------------------
OK

As far as I know I don't use Mozilla for anything. And any ideas on how to proceed would be appreciated!

Sisk, M.
