I want to delete a bunch of files, but it says I don't have acces to them, tho I'm administrator and have no limits to the computer usage.
How can I delete these?
EDIT: I tried in dos with rmdir etc... didn't work either...
thanks guys, now I know all I need to know
I bought a pc in a store, it already had winxp Home installed on it, now I was wondering, if I format and reinstall with the cd brought with the new pc, is it still legit?
so, what would be best then? Repair install or something else?
I did,I ran a virus scan, spyware/adware scan, I even checked with microsoft's tool for deleting malware. They all give nothing bad.
well, it can't be a user problem, beacause all users have it. Now I can only boot in safe boot, if I start windows normally, nothing will open :s
my kaspersky slows down my system so much when i right click anywhere in windows explorer,but i havnt had this problem until 1 weak agoand i didnt change any settings,just updated it.
anyone knows why is that?
I had that problem with Bit Defender 9.0, just uninstalled it and everything was back to normal
Windows XP isn't working quite properly anymore, sometimes when I boot, I see no errors but nothing will start, like ie, MSN, and other apps. Other times it works just like it should. Now, I was thinking of doing a repair installation and I was wondering if it removes all documents and settings/installed apps?

thanks. I cant see the boot.ini file but I can run it when I type c:\boot.ini. I'm also viewing hidden files/folders and when I try to save a boot.ini file to my c:\ disk it says it exists but I can't see it, so i cant edit the read-only options :s
nvmd, I got it
I got it. It was a broken sound registry. I fixed it with K-lite codec pack tools...
Is there a way to reset the boot.ini file? I downloaded stylexp and that kinda messed up my boot.ini file. Now I have 2 bootmodes which are identicly the same. I kinda wanna reset it
the value is .current
well, it's been a while I think because you don't instantly notice it. I don't have any malware/spyware/viruses, just ran a check for that. I'm admin, like other users...
well, that didn't work...
It's just the windows alert sounds (critical error, MSN, new email,...) that don't work because I have music from WMP and games
I don't have sound schemes :s. Windows XP standard is turned on in the audio tab (control panel). Normally you can test the sounds by clicking a play button, the play button is disabled and I can't click it. This is very annoying because I also don't have sounds for MSN and stuff like that.
The strange thing is that other users on this pc DO have sounds
Could anyone help me?
in Windows XP
actually, its a folder.
When I use unlocker it says no program is blocking it and unlocker can delete it, when I press delete, it still gives the acces denied error...
