Adobe Flash Player Helper 9.0 r45 is in c/my old disk structure/windows/system32/macromed/flash I would like to remove it. When I click delete it says access denied or disk full or file in use. I tried using safe mode and logging on as administrator but still unable to remove it. In the same folder is a file mn.ccc which I also want rid of. There is another file caleed CRMlog which is empty but I cannot remove it. These are all remnants from a recent restore. PC is fine now, I just want to clear up the debris.

Did you check in the Add/Remove Programs for this? If not, you should do that for this, and whenever you want to remove software.

Click Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.

Have you checked the folder's Properties?
Right click the folder, and select Properties.
Make sure it's not set to, Read-only.
If it is, uncheck it, click Apply, and click OK.
Now try to delete it.

Have you tried renaming the file, then deleting it?
Name it anything you want, like trash, old, useless, ........ whatever.

If none of the above works, here are a couple of programs, you can try:
Unlocker
Eraser
Delete Doctor
