I don't know if this is the right forum to post this in, but it seems the most appropriate.

I can run everything on my computer just fine, except for a folder located on my desktop. When i open it, my CPU usage jumps to 100% and stays there. I have done a virus scan and it didn't seem to help. Anything to point me in the right way to fixing it would be appreciated.

Just this one folder? Is there anything unique about it? 8,000 mp3's 50 gigs of avi's?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

i used to have this problem with a folder that had a .zip with a virus in it. AVG free antivirus saw the virus just fine if I remember.

yea, just one. The folder has about 80GB of random files. It has text files, music files, movies, iso files.


All right, I'll try AVG, thanks.

I would divide up and organize that folder, windows, especially with indexing and all the eye candy turned on has a hard time when the folder structure gets too complcated

getting it off your desktop and backed up should be a priority
