    every now and again when i go to open a file or folder my computer just comes up with the "are you sure you want to delete this file"message and you cant cancel it. I have tried allsorts of virus checkers, trojan hunter, spybot etc but nothing seems to find anything.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    You could try System File Checker; place your Windows CD in the drive, click start> run type in CMD, when the black window opens type in "sfc /scannow" (SFC is a part of Windows File Protection) this will replace any changed/damaged system files with a clean copy. SFC may not solve every problem, but it's a good start that anyone can do.

    Hope this helps...

    Let us know how you go.

    Cheers :D

    I would try the scan anyways even without the windows disk.

    I've been able to do it on several PC's of mine, and it works without the disk. I've only had it prompt for the windows disk once, but there is a work-around for that too if you search on google.

    If it fixed your problem it's great! lol

    But, if it didn't help you out any, I'm not sure I can help... I was just postin' to let you know that you don't have to have a windows disk...

    What about scanning it with online scanners such as microtrend or panda antivirus (my favorite)?

    Or, maybe it has to do with the registry keys being knocked out of place. Could you do a system restore and try and get rid of it that way?
