Unable to open files

Your Security Descriptors may be corrupted. Bring up the Run Command from the Start Menu, type 'cmd' without the apostrophes. In the command box type: chkdsk /f /x c: You should receive an option to reboot as Handles are Open on C. If you get an error message that you do not have rights to do this: Double Click My Computer, right click C drive, choose Properties, click on the Tools Tab and then select "Check for Errors" box. You will be prompted to restart you computer at some point. Let it restart and while it is restarting it will attempt to fix the security descriptor files. Once you get a Desktop you can try again. If you still have a problem, you will want to create a new account for Windows and then try again. If you still have an issue, you probably have malware or a virus that has infected your drive. Go online to Kapersky.com and run their online virus scanner.
