I have tried taking ownership as well as assign full control permission to C:\windows\system32 as well as tried unregister the dll file. I still cannot delete, rename the file extension to delete it. Any help will be great.

    Accepted Solution

    Which DLL file is it?  If it's in use by the system or by some process, you will never be able to delete it.

    I want to delete mscoree.dll as our developer found it to have conflict with the program they developed.

    Assisted Solution

    mscoree.dll is related to .NET Framework, if you will remove this file, most probably .NET applications will fail to run.
