How do you do this exactly in windows 10?

 

Is the very first advice which comes up on google the best advice?

 

Is there a guide here?

 

Can someone post it for Windows 10?

 

Will the team take remote access and do it?

Hi CarlRylander,

 

Why would you want to do this exactly?

Normally speaking, e.g. on a system without infection that replaces Windows files, these files are required for Windows, removal of them has serious consequences that cannot be (easily) resolved without a reinstallation.


Kind regards,
Axe0

No it doesn't if you remove them it stops people snooping on ur computer. They're built into windows it's wide open from the very bottom. It's inherently insecure unless u remove them and I want them removed.

I'm sorry to disagree with you, but that is not true. I do not know what ini and dll you want to remove, but the wininit.exe is used in the boot process, removing it will cause your system to not boot.


Kind regards,

Then it would be better to change your operating system, they cannot be removed while you're booted in Windows.

Your computer will not function with them removed.  Where did you come up with this idea that removing them is possible or a valid thing to do?

I suspect he is either mistakenly interpreting something he read about a virus infection or he is being trolled, i.e. Your win32 folder is a virus delete it.

Thank you ridemyc.

Okay to put this bluntly.

 

If you continue doing what you are doing your computer will no longer turn on.  STOP!

IT JUST HAS

It is a protected file, protected files CANNOT be removed in Windows in any way, not with commands nor with taking the ownership or any other way.

Can you provide a link showing that wininit.exe, ini, and dll should be deleted on Windows 10?

Whatever. I want them removed.

If you really want to REMOVE the files!
 
Start any Linux-version from DVD, USB, etc. in live mode and delete them from there.
May I suggest you backup the files so you can place them back if you regret your deeds...
 
Greets!  :wink:
