Create another user with local admin rights and delete the files from there.

All ready tried that , That was the first trick.

I feel it's in the reg haven't been able to find any thing and I am not really sure that I should be looking for too.

the files have a URL appearance to them .

Example first line reads the following: (;rnw=1;cqt=0;amp=N;prh=N ..ect .. nca=0[1] )
the next line reads as follows: (1035228687@headerspon. ...ect... localsite6[1].1 )

I already trid that . the files have the following format. Fisrt line starts out (;rnw=1;cqt=0;amp-n;prh=N---ect---nca=0[1])

The next line two lines are in this format(1035228687@headerspon. ---ect---localsite6[1].1)

I feel the problem lies in the reg. I looked around but not really sure what I am looking for too.

There is (2) folders in the CONTENT.IE5 folder [ OXSPUBOL & ON6NCHER ]
When I try to delete them < from any Log-on >

First error reads: (can not delete 103522~1.1 cannot find the specified file)

Click OK then get: OXSPYBOL IS A SYSTEM FOLDER, ECT.

Also if I try to run {Disk cleanup} it just hangs there that is when I found this situation

del \\.\Drive:\directory\filename
(Note: the period between \\ and \)

Dave this is what I typed at a prompt (thru cmd)

del \\.\C:\Documents and Settings\mark\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\0XSPYBOL


What error message I got was: {The system cannot find the path specified}

When I go to the Folder and do a DIR I get the following: 39,361 1035228687@HeaderSpon,PageSpon, PageSpon2,LocalAd,WxSpon,Explore1, Explore2, Explore3, Explore4, Explore5, Explore6,Localsite1, Localsite1, Localsite2, Localsite3, Localsite4, Localsite5, Localsite6,[1].1

I placed that as the “File Name� at the end of the path and go the same error.


I log on as the Key Admin on the unit, When I explore the “ User “ that has the problem file I note that there is {2}[Temporary Internet Files ] folders listed , but the problem one is IS inside a [Temp] folder as seen in the above path. The other is in this path [C:\Documents and Settings\mark\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5] and this one I can del any thing I wish.

Tried the command as stated - del “\\.\C:\Documents and Settings\mark\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\0XSPYBOL
Conformed the “Y� and got “File not found�

Tried - “\\.\C:\Documents and Settings\mark\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files ] and got ( could not find “\\.\C:\Documents and Settings\mark\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files )

Tried - del “\\.\C:\Documents and Settings\mark\Local Settings\Temp - and got ( the process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process )

All from the Admin level log on /not the Mark log-on

What I don’t understand is Why do I see the files in Windows, and CMD sees them in a DIR, but They can’t be seen for DEL ?

Also Why there is 2 Temp sub folders under User Mark, One that Windows uses All of the time and one that haves these files from Hell?

After backup you might want to run;
chkdsk /r
from the recovery console command line. (/r implies /f and /p)

To start the Recovery Console, start the computer from the Windows 2000
Setup CD or the Windows 2000 Setup floppy disks. If you do not have Setup
floppy disks and your computer cannot start from the Windows 2000 Setup CD,
use another Windows 2000-based computer to create the Setup floppy disks.
Press ENTER at the "Setup Notification" screen. Press R to repair a Windows
2000 installation, and then press C to use the Recovery Console. The
Recovery Console then prompts you for the administrator password. If you do
not have the correct password, Recovery Console does not allow access to the
computer. If an incorrect password is entered three times, the Recovery
Console quits and restarts the computer. Note If the registry is corrupted
or missing or no valid installations are found, the Recovery Console starts
in the root of the startup volume without requiring a password. You cannot
access any folders, but you can carry out commands such as chkdsk, fixboot,
and fixmbr for limited disk repairs. Once the password has been validated,
you have full access to the Recovery Console, but limited access to the hard
disk. You can only access the following folders on your computer:
%systemroot% and %windir%

In order to delete these nasty files that start with ;... try deleting
the folder that contains them. From a command prompt, use the rd
command with the /s option. for example:

c:\rd/s "C:\Documents and Settins\User\Local Settings"

I had the same problem and it was very frustrating! I hope this helps.
