  • C:\Documents and settings\PROFILE\Desktop\Desktop\□\Folder is not accessable

    This happens when one of my users is trying to access a folder on a network share. (i.e. her H: which is her Home folder)

    C:\Documents and settings\PROFILE\Desktop\Desktop\□\FOLDER is not accessable

    It's kind of hard to look this up on the net since the weird □ thingy, usually representing null is in the error message and Google doesn't like that. And whats up with the \Desktop\Desktop\? Why are there two desktops there?



    I'm thinking it has something to do with Explorer and the network share since H:\ is actually "located on the desktop" if you open a Explorer window. Attached an image of the error message.

    Any advice I give is to the best of my knowledge, there is no guarantee what so ever that it will actually work in your particular scenario. I will not accept any responsibility for unexpected consequences, after all - you are taking advice from a complete stranger over the internet. =)

    Have you tried making a new shortcut to H:\ on the desktop?
    Cheers,

      Those weird characters are usually generated by spyware that forces the creation of illegal characters making harder to remove. In your case it worked. Time for a sweep.
