Hum shouldn t matter but its a software folder that has 0 bytes in it from what I thought was  the best freeware site on the web

download.com and its happened when I try to delete e books and audio c/ds etc.

 

Had no idea it was so hard to shut down this pesty; annoying here today gone tomorrow U A Control ouchy; maybe try youtube for an instruction video and hope its not as hard as fokes here seem to think it is; since your Union_Thug are the first to answer me ! ?

 

Maybe just try to follow along a youtube video;  should be a good/easy one their right ? !

 

Thanks need the help . .

Try this. http://www.malwarebytes.org/fileassassin/

Warning: Please use caution with FileASSASSIN as deleting critical system files may cause system errors.

 

 

I used to recommend a program called Unlocker but now it bundles adware/spyware/toolbars etc :thumbdown: ... Caveat emptor:ph34r:
There's also this: http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/lockhunter_77a7.html but I can't vouch for it as I've never tried it.

 

Good Luck.

Ok this is getting silly and dragged out; just trying to turn off Admin control so trying something I invented not making it harder.

 

I did a system restore but that stupid admin control was still on; then after a lot of googling found something call " Taking ownership " and that is working so far; I can open; move and delete all folders so far; fingers crossed for any Admin blocked folder ; so far so good and hope it can me into all folders amazing how hard that's been ouchy .

 

Now back to googling how does the laptop owner; 1 person user shut down Admin control must be

a simple easy way to do that hummm trying to get that fixed here as made me curious so looking about harder ho hum -  later
