Yo. This is my first post lets see what happens...

Here's the deal.

My buddy accessed a shared folder on my PC and uploaded some production tools to it. He uses a MAC.

So now I have this file called "._spooky tambo shake "

The problem is, if I try delete, rename, move, or do anything for that matter to the file I get an error message "Error deleting file or folder: Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk."

I've tried using command prompt to delete the file but it doesn't even show up if I type "Dir"

Properties for the file are zero everything.

I've tried a program called KillBox but even that can't do it.

Help?

But before you delete that we need to know about the file first
Im not sure if its malware or a system file

So now I have this file called "._spooky tambo shake "

:thumbsup: Just want some more info on that file (for a close up) what does the icon look like?
On what folder is it located?
(And if possible,give us a screen shot of it)
Also where did you get this file in the first place?
What type of file is it (If you go back to properties)
It really sounds to me more likely renamed
Also searched it in the internet,I can't find any info about it

The file came from a bunch of production tools and samples (ie, used to make music with reason/logic etc).

It's not a system file or anything like that. It must just go because it's irritating me!

I've managed to rename the nested folders. It's path (including file) is "d:\production\a\a\a\._spooky tambo shake "

Spook tambo shake as in Spooky Tambourine Shake! That's the audio sample I suppose but it doesn't work.

I have the same problem, I already tried UNLOCKER with no result, I moved the file to the Quarantine folder, originally it was a hidden file from IE5. The file is causing defragment problems, with the message "disk defragmenter cannot continue prescan because there is a corruption in file c:\ Quarratine\ZYGR0UM2.
The folder ZYGR0UM2 has 2 files inside, can't see the attributes. One of the files appears with 4 kb but properties shows 0, there is no extension and the name is a little square ( no name, just the symbol of a square), the other file's name is "mzÉ" with 0 kb, no extension. Can't delete the files. I don't know where the file came from. But it started in C:\WINDOWS\Local
>Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5, when a tried to defrag, with the same defrag problem. I was not able to find the file until I used killbox, but was not able to delete it.
What can I do? I already tried chsdsk /f, cleanning manager, etc. nothing worked.

Thanks for your help, in advance

Whatever program created the Quarantine folder...ought to be able to dump quarantined items.

If they are quarantined...that means something identified them as malware items.

I'd try running SUPERAntiSpyware.com - AntiAdware, AntiSpyware, AntiMalware! - http://www.superantispyware.com/

thanks Louis for your interest, the folder was crated by MCafee virusscan enterprise, but does not detect anything wrong.
I already tried super antispyware. Anyway I was not able to remove the file.
Any other suggestions?

As I said...open McAfee and purge the contents of the Quarantine folder.
