Hi guys!
yesterday i downloaded some videos from youtube.com and when i copied them to this folder, i could access it no more. The symptom is that whenever i double-click the folder, it takes almost indefinite time to access. In fact, the laptop nearly hung. I had to use task manager to shut down the explorer.exe(i saw that the CPU usage of explorer.exe was 100%). I couldn't delete the folder either, because when i did so, the laptop hung too. When i looked into Event Viewer, i saw announcement like this: Event ID 7000: the HDD&SSD access service failed to start due to the following error: the system cannot find the file specified.
And this doesn't happen to all folders and files. It just happens to the folder to that i copied the videos from youtube.
Please tell me, what am i supposed to do now?

Open a command window (Start->"Start search", type in 'cmd' hit enter).
In command prompt window type:
regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll
Press Enter.

Try one more time, but this time after typing "cmd", hold CTRL and SHIFT keys, then press Enter (it'll open command prompt as administrator).
Then type:
regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll
Press Enter.

I have to apologize. shmedia.dll file doesn't exist in Windows 7.

That fix applies to Windows XP only.

Looking for other solutions.

Are those video files/folder important to you?

Restart computer in Safe Mode and see, if you can delete the folder from there.

If it still doesn't work....

Download, and install Unlocker: http://cedrick.collomb.perso.sfr.fr/unlocker/
Restart computer.
It'll install under right click menu.

Open Windows Explorer.
Navigate to offending folder/file.

Right click on a folder/file. Click Unlocker
Select Delete from drop-down menu:

Click OK.
A folder/file will refuse to be deleted, but Unlocker will give you an option to delete on reboot:

Click Yes.
Restart computer.

==============================================================

If the above doesn't work, try...

LockHunter: http://lockhunter.com/

FileASSASSIN: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/fileassassin.html
