Well first of all I should probably say why I'm deleting files. Recently I've noticed that my spyware and adware scanners have been randomly freezing halfway through scanning my computer. So I wrote down the file that it stopped on, using Adaware. And it happened to be this file:
"C:\DOCUME~1\Buyer\Locals~1\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.I5\4DUFCDMR"
So then I tried deleting the file, but I got an message that told me explorer.exe had generated errors and was creating a log file. I got the exact same messages when trying to use programs such as Scandisk, so I knew some kind of file was trying to prevent me from deleting it.
I can't do anything to the "4DUFCDMR" file without my computer freezing, and then having to restart, so I searched the internet for help, and somebody reccommeded I try deleting the "C:\Windows\tempor~1" file in MSDOS mode. But I don't know how to type the command.
Is this the right thing to do? And if so, what should the command be?
I really hope you can help, I'm going mad! Thanks!
