Can't remove directory created under a domain when not in the domain anymore

I have 2 dirertories off of the root that were created on my laptop while logged on to a domain at an old job.  Now I can't view or remove these directories, it says access denied. I am logged on as administrator on the local machine, I can 't log on to the domain any more.

Hello Halhorton,

You might need to take the ownership of the directories, try doing that and then try and delete them

Good Luck

I already tried changing permissions, It also say access denied
You need to be logged on with the "Local Administrator" account, are you logged on with that ?
