Solved Can't delete folder

Post by magicm00n on 9th June 2009, 8:56 am

Hi, I need help deleting a folder. I've renamed a folder with Alt+255(Pressing Alt+255 gives you a blank space so basically it doesn't have a name). This had no problems with my xp but with vista now I can't delete the folder. I did a system restore but the folder is still there. Please is there a way to delete this folder. I don't want to have to format my pc. Please reply asap.
