if someone had access to your puter and wanted to destroy it they would have done so by now, so i don't think you should worry too much.Smile

did you run netstat and see if anyone was connected to your computer? You could unplug your network cord, and then try to delete it.

Okay unplugged ethernet cord and it was still being used by another program or person.

I dont knwo what program would need a folder called xerox.

Would booting into safemode and deleting it work?

Try deleting it from command line first, sometimes that works. Have you tried rebooting and seeing if a process uses that folder on startup, if so, you only need to find out which program uses that folder on startup, disable it from startup in msconfig, reboot and then del that folder and the offending program.

okay before you go off and delete a folder that you are unsure of what it does you should take some steps. i mean, what if it is being used by a legitament piece of hardware or something?

some things that you should look for are:
1) is anyone conected to your computer? netstat -an will be of help here, however if you have a kernal rotkit installed, you're pretty much screwed, as you will not be able to trust any info that is returned.

2) disconnect your ethernet cable from the computer. this will prevent youi from being online and from other accessing it.

3) see if you can pull up a process list (the windows equivlent of a ps -aux). maybe that will provide some clues..

4) portscan your system and look for any trojans etc (just your basic security sweep).

5) check all your hardware docs and see if you can find some mention of this.

hopefully you'll find that it was nothing. however, if you do think that you have had a breach and cannot confirm it, be paranoid and flatten/rebuild the box. then apply all the updates and patches,etc along with a paranoid firewall config.

and while your at it, get that box away from windows and put linux on it Wink

Yeah, that folder has been on my computer for as long as I can remember. I think it is just one of those mysterious Windows things.
