Ahh...thanks God!! ;)

There's the explanation...thanks a lot, at least this confirms what I 
thought: windows trouble :( I tried to use this attr command as they 
suggest on the article you sent me and doesn't work either, but I 
checked an it happens even on folders of the hard disk!!! So, I can 
inform my customer to complain Microsoft for this ;)

Thanks a lot for your help
