I have a shared folder on a server. If I map a drive to it and try and open it access is denied. If I right click on the mapped drive in my computer the Open  menu item is displayed as junk. I can explore the folder without a problem.

Do you have access to the folder via both shared tab and security tab.
both need to be enabled before you gain access.

Yes sharing is good. the workd open in the dropdown menu looks like this   ¶}±Ò(O) and if yo click on it you get access denied. if you select explore from the menu you get right in. I get this same thing on the server itself from the console.

Are you able to recreated the share again, and delete that directory... looks like a corrupted directory.
Move files from that folder to another delete folder and recreate share and let me know how you go?

Please try recreating the directory and copying all files across and then recreate the share. this should fix the problem.
