How to Delete folder in Windows 7
Posted on 2010-09-06
I have a folder that was formerly used by Windows 7 for a user's data. It is called c:\users\elisha_del. I can't delete it. When I try to delete it, I am told "you'll need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder."
I am already logged in as an administrator. When I click continue I am told "folder access denied. You'll need permission to perform this action..." When I click "try again" nothing happens.
I have tried to make myself the owner of this object and to give myself "full control." but I still can't delete the folder. There is a little "lock" on the folder icon when I view it in windows explorer.
What do I do now?
