Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Foobar locks up folders upon exit

I have a CD image encoded as an .ape file, and I drag the .cue sheet to the foobar2000 playlist so I can split the .ape file into individual tracks. No problem here. Let's say all these files are in the directory "C:\foo". Now I exit out of foobar2000 and I move all contents of "C:\foo" somewhere else on my C: drive. Still no problems. But now when I try to delete the now empty "C:\foo", Windows Vista tells me that I don't have permission.

Searching elsewhere on the internets gives me useless trivialities such as "set the ownership" or "open explorer in administrative mode" or "make sure the folder is not read-only".

This problem goes away when I restart my computer, but it would be nice not to have to do this every time I convert some files in foobar2000. Can someone tell me what's going on? I apologize in advance for my ignorance
