finds interconnected files though isn't able to delete these files since they are attached to a sky drive on a now upgraded windows 8 to a windows 8.1


Is there any help out there that is worthy letting me know how to rid my system of these corrupt files ? Please, Thank You


proceeding the file says can not be deleted due to another program using this exact file. Now further understanding even in safe mode I am unable to open minitoolbox to delete:


C:\Users\Book\SkyDrive : ms-properties (199 bytes)

C:\Users\Book\SkyDrive\Documents : ms-properties (183 bytes)


These files limit you deleting them from Windows 8.1. This error message says The file could not be deleted since this was locked by another program in the background.


This was tried but not removed using ADS Spy and AdwCleaner

still those files are not allowing a complete installation of eset_node32_antivirus_live_installer  .I will no try an offline setup and that does the same. At all costs, I think I'm going to need another operating system.

The ADS files you are seeing look legit. Why are you trying to remove them?
