Yesterday afternoon I downloaded an AVI file from a site that I have downloaded from before. During the download I got a popup message from McAfee saying (words to the effect) that a buffer had been overloaded. Not thinking much of it, I just clicked on [okay] and let it continue to download. When I tried to play back the video, RealPlayer just sat there like it was trying to get it going, but to no avail. I tried running it in Windows Media Player, and got an error message saying that I needed some kind of codex for it to run. Rather than go through the hassle, I just decided to delete the file. Well, imaging my surprise when it wouldn't delete. I get this nice little pop up box saying it was calculating the time (needed to delete it, I suppose) but even after 30 minutes the box was still calculating. The only way I can get it to go away is to hit [cancel]. I tried restarting my computer, thinking that might help, but it just did the same ting again. Tried again this morning and I'm getting the same results. I'm at my wits end. It's slowing my documents folder way down when I try to open it. I've tried everything I know (which isn't much, I'm afraid) to get rid of it and it just will not delete. HELP!!! How can I get rid of that stupid file??? Many thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.
