when I try to delete a folder on my computer I get the message [blue]ERROR: cannot find the specified file make sure you specify the correct path and file name[/blue]. So how do I get rid of it.

You might try dropping to a DOS prompt. Start-Accessories-MS DOS Prompt. Then use the deltree command. What folder? What operating system?

windows 2000, and the folder is on my desktop. It wont even let me open the folder.

My win89 machine does that sometimes. What generally happens is that I will delete a folder, and then notice that it's not gone. I try again to delete it and get an error message. A good swift press of the power button a couple of times always fixes it. In other words, it's already gone, just some bug keeps the icon around. Just re-boot, it should make all well for you.
