    stupid bloody firmware update I sent my uncle is called
    MYS6WIN.EXE.EXE
    for some reason it made shortcut of it next to it on desktop, i deleted the actual EXE.EXE file and now when i try to delete the shortcut I get "file does not exist" and when ever i click on something AFTER that a popup comes up saying "the source and destination filenames are the same" it doesnt matter what i try it will not delete

    ive tried changing filenames (it wont let me says the file does not exist) ive then created a new .exe file that its looking for which lets me then delete the shortcut but then when i try to delete the .exe file the whoe thing starts over again

    ive tried MOVE ON BOOT and IOBIT's 360 UNLOCK & DELETE option to no success

    Iam totally sick of this file and feel like throwing the computer at the wall lol

    can anyone help with this? I cant understand WHY its happened anyway? - if its any help I was wondering why the file had double extension on end... ive also noticed that the original file had about 30 blank spaces after the last .EXE too...??? it was downloaded from SONY's website


    thanks

    Thats kind of funny, you can use a Linux CD to fix Windows problems, but you cannot use a Windows CD to fix Linux problems...

    Glad you got it sorted out.
