    You can drag that folder out of there up to the C root and everything will return to normal in most cases.

    Well....i did that b4 i posted this forum and it didn't help

    but i did somthing and it worked!::

    Most access denied messages are usually solved by logging in as

    administrator (if your not already) and "Taking ownership" of the files/folders,as described HERE

    The reason it says 0 bytes is because Windows doesn`t think you have

    the rights to know this information.You have to tell it that you do
