    Curious, what happens if you open a command prompt window, and manually cd into it?

    if that doesn't work, change the attrib settings then re try.

    It's a cloud equivalent of a network drive used for on the fly installs of the ms office suite. Its supposed to remove itself after you've restarted the computer.

    Hi there romanticcowboy, what size of farm, what sort of animals, and how many?

    I have done support for automated hog-farming applications.............I think that the smell has just gone

    Have you any computerised systems for the farm?



    Hope you were OK with those tornadoes............. a half-mile wide critter flattened my brother-in-laws house in Athens Al.

    Cheers

    EDIT:

    Probably a Windows update finished the job?

    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
