Question A Folder that opens the root folder...

I used some program that created a folder of my C Drive. Now If I open that folder, it is my C Drive in there...and you can keep opening it until it's like C:\C\C\C\C\C\C\C\C\C\C\C\C.

This isn't that big of a deal except that when my virus scanning software and searches go through every single one, it becomes a problem because the never finish. I was wondering if there is a way to remove them. Deleting one of the folders deletes everything in the main folder, so that isn't an option. Please help.

You can safely delete the folder in the drive. It might be a shortcut to the C: Drive.
