I am totally unable to open, view or modify anything within the \Windows\Temp folder.
Malwarebytes fails half way through, SpyBot closes when you run it to check for errors, opening the temop folder via Windows Explorer results in the window closing the moment i try to open the folder.
Using "Del *.* " from the command prompt also results in the command window to close.
It seems something is hiding in this TEMP folder and not lettign me in to get rid.
I even tried in safe mode, same outcome.
Made an in-place reinstall of XP, same problem.
