    On my desktop there is this folder, which I have used its contents and want to delete. Problem is when I delete it I get this:
    folder ... contains items whose name is too long for the recycle bin. Do you want to permanently delete it?
    So yes then:
    Cannot delete ing: Access is denied.
    Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
    Restart xp does not help.
    Help. Thanks

    Solutions does not help. There are 2 hidden files, jpeg, but nothing in it. When I unhide the files, it is still missing. When I view it, there is nothing in it. Then there is no way in the ms help that is the same as what I'm facing.

    Hey myst, I had the same problem once before and I believe it was GLC who showed me Move on Boot. Works everytime for me, once its installed just right click on the file and select 'Delete file(s) on the next boot'
