I'm running windows vista home premium 32 bit. In the past I've downloaded a music video to my computer and realized that every time I was in the same folder as that file windows explorer would restart and close the folder window. Luckily there wasn't anything else in the folder so I was able to delete the folder without touching the file. Well today I downloaded a file I thought was fine, but it was another one of those files. The problem is I saved it to my desktop so now every time I log in it just constantly restarts windows explorer over and over again until I have to Ctrl+alt+delete and log out. I tried very quickly right clicking the file on the desktop and deleting it, but the windows explorer restart is faster. I know once I get it into the recycle bin I can open that up and click the empty button without clicking the file directly (which I've done in the past with that other corrupt video). I just can't get it into the recycle bin. What I tried just now is I logged on to my other account in the computer and using search am able to see the file in the desktop folder. I noticed that if I don't have the view on "details" or "list" when I enter that folder, windows will automatically restart again. So I put it on "details" and I can now see the corrupt file in the folder, but...IT DOESN'T MATTER because the second I touch the file even from my other user account it automatically restarts windows explorer and exits the search I was doing before I can delete it. Sorry for the rant, but it's getting really annoying. Any ideas on how I can delete this file? Edit: Tried in Safe Mode and the problem continues.
