I request help.
In my desktop I have a folder I could not delete. I renamed it as 123456, but that did not help. Inside the folder there is one file named installer.exe. (yes, with a dot after the exe). Tried deleting but again: Item Not Found
The file type is File.
When I open the folder, installer.exe. says it weighs 958 Kb. When I right click and look at properties it says 0 bytes. When I scan it with Bitdefender 2015 it reports 7 files scanned.
Eraser has no effect and Secure Eraser returns a File Not Found answer.
In an elevated command prompt I typed
Then through properties I find the folder's location and added it
>cd /d C:\Users\passacaglia\desktop enter
C:\Users\passacaglia\desktop>dir /x enter
This shows me all I have in my desktop and one item is the 123456 folder
C:\Users\passacaglia\desktop>rmdir /q /s then copy the file name and paste it
C:\Users\passacaglia\desktop>rmdir /q /s 123456 enter
The folder should now be gone
But I get the following line:
123456\installer.exe. - The system cannot find the file specified
I try to copy and paste installer.exe. in the desktop
I get a window saying that this file is no longer located in C:\Users\passacaglia\desktop\123456
I right click the file and Properties say this file is located in C:\Users\passacaglia\desktop\123456
I have run Bitdefender Internet Security 2015, Malwarebytes, Spybot, Superantispyware Pro, adwCleaner, Rogue Killer. I have also run RKill before Bitdefender and others. CF is not yet compatible with Win10 so I cannot submit a log file for analysis.
I am baffled. I lack more knowledge. Could somebody help me, PLEASE?
Another piece of info. Entering dir /x shows 3 directories. In front of one I find the 123456. But also, dir /x says I have 0 files.
