PROBLEMS DELETING FOLDERS IN XP

I am having problems deleting folders in XP. I have many folders that
have subfolders and files in them. When I am finished with them I
normally just select them in windows explorer and hit the delete key.
However lately I am unable to do that. I get this error message.....

Error Signature:

AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2800.1106 ModName: shell32.dll
ModVer: 6.0.2800.1556 Offset: 00046983

When this happens all the icons on the desktop dissapear and then they
come back. The only way that I have been successful in deleting is to
go into the sub folders individually and delete the files first then
the sub folders then the main folder.
Is there a fix for this?
Thanks in Advance

I had a similar problem a while back and found that if you run into that
situation,
single left click the item first to highlight it then right click to delete.
In many cases you are trying to delete a directory that is "not empty" thus
it will not let you and you have to start with files and sub-folders and work
your way up. :-)

I am no expert, but I did stay at
the Holiday Inn last night

Are you running active AV background scanning?

Two things to try as an experiment. First, disable your AV tool and see what
happens. It could be the AV tool is having problems. Second, do a
shift-delete to bypass the recycle bin.

Try with NAV disabled to see what happens. If you're running Liveupdate the
executable part of NAV is being updated as well. The NAV you're running
today isn't necessarily what came of the box.

Then try doing shift-delete to bypass the recycle bin.

Something also just occured to me. If you have Norton protected recycle bin
installed disable it as well.

Go to http://www.silentrunners.org/ and download "silent runners.vbs"
Three things from a diagnostic stand point. It looks like something is
hooking the shell although there is nothing obvious I can find at present.

Run "silent runners" and copy and paste the results back here. That will
tell me what you have running outside the normal MS supplied startup stuff.

You can also try the delete in safe mode to see what happens as well as
doing the delete via command line 'rmdir /s [path]'. You can use 'rmdir /?'
for an explanation.

Hello Walter

Here are the results of "silent Runner" like you asked.
I also discovered that I can delete folder if I just go to them "left click
and just press the delete button. Sometimes "RARELY" I can actually right
click on a folder and get the menu that way but the it goes back to the same
error.

THanks for the HElp

Hello Walter

Thanks for your help, I looks as if the problem is gone. WHen you said to
desable the AV recycle bin protection in Norton. I did but it didn't seem to
work until now; I checked it again and I saw that it was only disabled on
only one of my 4 HDD. When I disabled it just now on all 4 drives the problem
seems to have gone. I had to disable it for each drive seperatly. I think it
is working fine now.
THanks again and if this turns out to be not the cause I will update it it
here.

THanks a million for the help.

Hello Again

I just rebooted and the problem came right back, checked for the AV recycle
bin protection it is still disable on all 4 drives but the problem is back. I
think my computer is a bit slower as well as a result.
I did install cakewalk after the problem seemed to have gone and that is why
I rebooted. but here we are again.

Thanks for any help Walter

Hello Smooth

I also have that problem. However I am not sure if it is related but it
seems to me that on my computer the problem went away when I removed Cakewalk
Pro 9. but then came back when I re-installed it. Now I am not 100% sure that
this was the cause; it could just be a coincedence since the problem is
intermitenet. However I want to ask you if you also have Cakewalk 9 pro on
your computer.

thanks

I'm jumping in here since you're seeing something a bit different from
Smooth G I think. :-/

Your issue seems to occur when trying to bring up context menus.. Two
things: Do you have the same issue when right clicking a file rather than a
directory? Does Cakewalk install any thing in the context menu?

Hello Again Walter

No the problem is when I right click on a directory.
All my windows vanish and I get a blank screen then I come back to my
desktop with the error message.
I have the same problem as smooth

any ideas? any thing showing from the silent runners page?

thanks Walter

As of this time it appears to have at least temporarily fixed the
problem. Since it was intermittent I will have to do some more tests.
Thanks for all your help!!!! I will let you know if the success is
permanent or not!!!!

Hello Walter and Smooth

Thanks for the Help.
I also had Spy Sweeper and when I disabled it the problem seems to have gone
away. I hope this is really it. I hate having to re-install everything.
Thanks again

Exactly! As I told you earlier try to disable the spy sweeper part and
it appears to have worked for me and then it has appeared to work for
you as well. I would like to thank all who have helped me on this and
of course the guy that actually gave me the successful fix from
another newsgroup!!!
