Problems with Windows 7

#1
Well, more like 2 problems only to be exact.
I cannot seem to delete a movie file from my computer... or transfer it... or rename it.
It is forever stuck on Imageshack - problemv
Originally i couldn't even right click it but i managed to fix it using the shell ex configure.

Also, my SD card constantly tells me that i need to reformat my card before i can use it.
Panasonic's SD card formatter will not do a thing says the card is not supported.
(although it works on my friend's Windows XP and Vista)

My computer specs are:
Asus X80Le Laptop

Sorry for all the questions, but to help you...........

Does the movie file happen to be on your desktop?

What happens when you click More Details, does it show any progress?

How large is the file you're trying to delete.?

What OS was originally installed on your laptop and did you perform a "clean" install of Windows 7 or an upgrade?

I did a clean install of Windows 7 32 bit and I originally used Windows XP.
The file is a matroska (.mkv)
And it's only 342 mb.
I managed to delete it from my desktop by booting in safe mode and deleting it.
However, I can't seem to remove it from my recycle bin. (in normal mode)
I may need to boot in safe mode again.

Although if you have a fix... I'd love to hear it.
Yes, it was on my desktop.
When I click more details all it shows is calculating.

Sorry, I don't have a complete answer for you as I had it happen myself with a video file on the desktop.

I'm sure this will be corrected in the final version.

I would go back into Safe Mode to see if you can empty the Recycle Bin.

I can clean out the recycle bin via safe mode.
(Note to self: save everything into their proper folders for the time being)

I sure hope that it'll be fixed.

Now if only i could get my SD card to work...
