I un-did my edit as suggested in the comments. Now it is original and I have the solution in an answer.

comment What is this strange folder that is always accumulating files?
When I used Process Explorer, I found it wasn't being used anymore. I was able to delete without any problem. The only thing I had done prior that might relate are several reboots and making it "read-only" as Kyle suggested. Thanks for your answer. If it happens again I know where to start.

comment Spilled vinegar on laptop, what to do?
@MaQleod - I did failure analysis and repair at a contract manuf of printed circuit boards for years. Your comment is almost entirely bogus regarding alcohol. We used it all the time in the manual cleaning process. Also, our automated machines used water based solutions for cleaning at various steps in the process (see also smtnet.com/Forums/Index.cfm?CFApp=1&Message_ID=50372 for what some other folks still use). The only thing you got right was to suggest a higher concentration as this will dry faster.

Actually, adding liquid is what saved my laptop (though there is a bit more too it--see my answer)

comment Revision 3 SATA (6Gb/s) capable laptops, do they exist?
The problem is that you're not taking into account the difference between the byte and the bit. 3Gb is actually 375MB (note the lowercase b and uppercase B--lowercase is bit, upper is byte), which is right at the threshold.
