    Well, the problem is simply that I cannot access a certain directory. Everytime I try, said program/process closes. Explorer.exe, Ewido, Killbox, whatever it happens to be. There is a file in there that is corrupt and refuses to be deleted, I know HOW to delete it, but I don't know the file name. Is there a way to discover it without accessing it in explorer? Is it possible to use cmd or something to list the files? Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: I've been using CMD to discover the file name, it just closed CMD. I then tried deleting all .jpg files in the directory, it closed it again, and I'm STILL denied access. I was wondering if it was possible to format ONE particular directory and delete EVERYTHING in that directory? Cause that'd save me totally.
