|hi wedajm .. you should have some basic knowledge of DOS commands ... no matter. Try this...|
Start > Run > type 'cmd' and hit 'Enter'
It should open the command prompt window showing the directory you are currently in, usually (drive):\Documents and settings\(Your Username)>
At the command prompt, type 'cd desktop' and hit Enter
Next type 'del *.tor' and hit Enter
If there were any problem files, they will get deleted permanently. You can then type 'exit' to get out of the command prompt window and back to the Vista desktop.
If this does not work, then as JackFrost46 said, you will need to check if the problem files have 'read only / hidden / system attributes' AND/OR 'do not conform to DOSes 8.3 format', in which case, you can follow those instructions to check/remove the attributes and rename the files to conform to 8.3 format. Then follow the steps in this post to delete them.
To check for 8.3 format, type 'dir /a /x /p'. Locate the file and use 'del' command to delete the file using it's listed corresponding 8.3 filename.
To remove read only/ system /hidden attributes, use 'attrib -a -s -h (entire filename with extension)'
To rename file type 'ren (include entire filename with extension here) (include new filename here)
Note : new filename must be in 8.3 format, i.e. for example ... original filename --> somethingsomethingsomething.something
rename to ---> newname1.tor
You will have to do this for each prblem file and then 'del newname1.tor' OR 'del *.tor' for multiple files.
In case of torrentworld.net files, it is usually sufficient to use 'del *.tor' (as long as they have a listed 8.3 format name) as they don't have any attributes that need to be removed.
