Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
When I click on any of the files in a particular directory, I get the message that the system can't access the file - to check to see if another program is using it or that I don't have rights. I've tried this as Administrator wi no success. I did a scandisk and it came up clean. I'm assuming there's some kind of disk corruption. Can somebody suggest a good disk cleanup utility? Most of the utilities I see are for delete file recovery - which isn't the case here...
Norton System Works offers a good scandisk utility. Before doing that, try opening something like windows media player or another audio program and try to open an audio file inside that program to see if you get the same error.

Tips for a great answer:
Plug the flash drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.
Wait for Windows to recognize the system.
Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.
Open the drive on your computer.
Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using
Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.
Transfer files to the flash drive.
Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.
Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.
Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.
Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."
Close the windows and directory locations when finished.
Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.
Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.
Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.
Close the windows and files when finished
hope this helps
