I have a folder called C:8e2766e5fa559c32dee2f00483e114 that contains a file called MPSigStub.exe. I can't delete it even though I've look at the 'take ownership' tutorials. Keep on getting '....require permission from IAIN-PCIain to make changes' error.
I want to make a folder (and anything inside of it) difficult to delete. Can I create a new owner for it so that I would have to take the steps to change that in order to delete it ? I'm not looking for anything fool-proof, just something to make it not so easy to accidentally delete. I'm not too savvy with owners and permissions so I'm not really sure what to do or even if I'm on the right track.
So i'm trying to delete this file i have in my downloads folder, which is a normal .avi file. however, this file is really broken, it wont delete. I suspect this file makes my folder not showing thumbnails and acting slow and sometimes wont show anything at all, just a loading bar thing.
i tried deleting with cmd prompt, while explorer.exe is off, but command prompt stops responding. i tried searching the folder for viruses, finds nothing. i tried downloading Unlocker to delete it, but ends up with unlocker stops responding. i tried quarantine the file, it gets into quarantine in NOD32 but the file is also still in my download folder, and NOD stops responding.
i get no message at all trying to delete it, it's just that nothing at all happens.
What is wrong with this file?! It plays fine though, just like a normal .avi file. Is there anything else i can try? cmd prompt and NOD32 don't get the windows "has stopped working" message, they just stop responding to me clicking any button in NOD32, or writing new text in cmd prompt. i can exit them as normal.
I was trying to recover some lost files with recovery software, I came across something unpleasant - my partitions contain 'Found' folder that contains 'Found.NNNN' N for numbers, folders that contain files previously deleted with their filenames also remaining. I want these files cleared, the thing is, unlike $RECYCLE.BIN that can be accessed if you unhide system folders and such, these folders do not exist and yet recovery software finds them.
Can you tell me what application can erase these folders and files so that they do not appear under the recovery software? Eraser does not detect the folder as existent. It is something like ROOTFolder but I don't know which erasing program can find and delete the whole folder.
after uninstalling avast few days ago i was prompted to restart the system. Since then when i booted up a random folder named [e1136dde5b111b6e950b(windows defender files)] came up in program files. I cannot delete it since it's needless , nor' rename it , take ownership or anything. I've provided few screenshots showing it.
I was trying to clean up my 8.1 system and encountered a folder that it won't allow me to delete or move. It is in C:users[me]appdatalocal emp and is named rarsfx4. It appears to have been used by my AV pgm., Bitdefender, at install time. When I attempt to delete it, it asks me if I want to move it to the recycle bin. I click Yes. Then it says I need to provide administrator permission to delete it. I click Continue. Then a little window pops up and quickly disappears that says '234 items recycled.' Then another window appears that says 'You require permission from xxxme to make changes to this folder' and gives me only the option to try again, which just repeats this last process. xxx is my PC name, and xxxme is my user profile name, not any user account name that shows up in Control Panel, User Accounts. (I have only one user account, which is a network one, my gmail ID.) When I check Properties, Security, for the folder, I see that System, my network user account (which is an administrator), and Administrators (xxxAdministrators) all have full control. When I click on Advanced under Security above, the owner is displayed as Administrators (xxxAdministrators).
I also tried deleting the folder using Command Prompt, Run as administrator, but get 'access denied' for every file.
My questions are what is going on here, and what can I do to remedy it?
I keep getting this error when I try to create or delete a folder. I also cannot use applications which create temporary folder such as WinRAR.
The error says this: "An unexpected error is keeping you from creating the folder. If you continue receive this error, you can use the error code to search for solution of this problem. Error 0x80070570: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."
I tried all the possible options to solve this problem except for reinstalling the Windows.
I was moving my default user folder locations, where I have managed to move 'My Pictures' and 'My Documents' successfully. however when I was moving Documents folder I made a mistake of selecting the whole 'e:' drive as the target location instead of 'e:download'. As I don't want the E: to be the target location I have reverted it back.
Now for some reasons I am not able to delete Downloads folder that I created manually in E: drive. That folder is hidden, it doesn't show even when I select the option to show hidden files and folders. However the files in that Download folder are showing up when I search them.
To open the 'Documents' properties I selected one of the file from the search list, right clicked and selected open file location. so finally when I saw the properties of the folder it says hidden, and it is not allowing me to uncheck it. I tried changing permissions of the folder but still no luck. I even used command prompt to delete that folder, but it says access denied.
All I now need is I want to delete the folder 'Download' in my E: drive. I am the admin of my windows 8 pc.
I had windows 7 and decided to go back to windows 8.1 and after installing windows 8.1 on my LocalDisk i ofund a folder named "b04102c22e49885eb0" - where it came from, I'm sure it wasn't there. I cannot delete it because : adminRequest -- after clicking continue access denied ; and after taking the ownership of the folder is the same thing.
Yes , I am on an Administrator account. So, what's up with this folder?
There is a folder left over from an uninstalled product called "Symantec". When I attempt to delete this, I get the message "You require permission from SYSTEM to make changes to this file". Clicking the "Try Again" button does nothing and the same message reappears.
I have tried to take ownership of the file through Properties > Security > Advanced, however, I get this error:
"An error occured while applying security information to (file path). Failed to enumerate objects in the contianer. Access is denied."
I have also tried to use an elevated command prompt to run the takeown command on this directory, however, get the "Access is denied." message for all files.
how to delete this file - unlocker does not work either!
I have downloaded some applications, and it won't allow me to delete them (it keeps saying the file is open in that application--I checked task manager, and there's nothing there). I read that a program called Unlocker can work, but when I try to run the setup, nothing happens. This is happening for all applications in my Download folder.
I have this problem all the time. I try to delete a file that is not open and get the message in this screen capture. Usually (but not always) I can reboot and delete. What causes this and how can I prevent it?
I uninstalled a program, the file is still in the program files (x86). When I deleted the file a message came up. "Folder in Use - The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program. Close the folder or file and try again." I keep trying and pressing the button again the same message. How do you delete the file?
Is it possible to delete IE10 in Windows 8 Pro? I did try all the methods in the Internet that I can find to disable the IE10, (only disable the IE10 but not delete from the system), but it will not let me install IE9. I need the IE9 to work for the state reporting system.
i get this error when ever i try to delete those file from Windows.old (i just reinstalled my windows 8 pro), i tryed many thing including cmd, unlocker, etc. with no luck. Any ways to delete this 2 files?
.wav file that doesn't get deleted. After i hit enter various del commands don't get executed and the cmd prompt stops(doesn't let me type). This is frustrating because it is causing windows task to run excessively when it's folder(downloads) is open. [unlocker fixed it]
