NVU Install / delete problems

Problem #1:

I downloaded Nvu Portable 1.0 rev 3 and tried install it on my 2GB flash stick into the folder G:\Program Files\Nvu . It didn't work. I even tried it on multiple pc's. I get a error:

Problem #2 | I cant delete

Since it didn't install properly on multiple pc's, I went to go delete it. I get prompted with this:

http://www.sdx.xperthost.com/uploader/files/1/Images/deleteerror.GIF

Thats odd. Why are there boxes in the filename....
Then I get this....

So i try to delete the files manually. In the G:\Program Files\Nvu\NVUPortable\App\nvu folder is the location of the odd files names. Not only that, it says the total size of the folder is 10.5GB. When I try to delete those files I get...

Note that awfully large files on my 2GB stick...

I need help of getting rid of those files and or fixing the bad install.

Corruption

Your drive is partially corrupt. I suggest pulling off any files you need and reformating, which may help.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Are you sure? I can delete

Are you sure? I can delete /rename/ copy/cut / run ALL other files on the stick. Its only that folder that brings up those errors.

Yup

If after a reboot you can't do anything with that folder... it's corrupted. And the NVU installer isn't an installer per-say. It's just a self-extractor... equivalent to me distributing a zip and you using 7-zip to unzip it to your drive. My guess is that you just happened to get unlucky and it hit that corrupted part of the drive when you were putting Nvu on the drive.
