Did you try to move anything important from that drive and format it?

You should try this free software called Unlocker, it has worked for me when I had trouble trying to delete folders that had 0 bytes and gave an error message when trying to delete. You can get it from here

I downloaded the program and it worked fine. Why does the program place a ebay icon on my desktop for the shortcut? Thanks!!!!

you can delete it, it must have placed the shortcut whilst installing the software. at least you got rid of that music folder thats good.Have a nice day.

You might go into IE...and check the add-ons that are listed...to insure that all is as you want it.

If an ebay icon was part of your install, other items (e.g., toolbars) may also have been installed with the application.
