something simmilar happened to me too. Try reinstalling windows explorer, it will install any files you are missing, which is what could cause the problem

maverick25,

OKay, login to safe mode. Goto folder options and enable "show hidden and system files" . Now move to that folder and try to delete any 'folder.htt' or 'desktop.ini' files .

BTW, why dont you just delete that folder , if its causing you so much trouble?

The problem maybe cause by your download tools!

you can reinstall your download tool and move your download folder to other folders or other partition
