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 its folder (downloads) is open.

I need deleting a file in my print que. It says it's deleting the file but nothing happens and other files sent to the printer will not print. I haven't found much that is specific to Windows 8 64 bit with an internet search.
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?
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?
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.
Windows 8.1 ... My anti-virus program is Bitdefender Total Security 2013. It has detected a virus called "Adware.DomaIQ.I". It has infected a file named "7-zip.exe". The anti-virus cannot delete the virus for some reason. I tried to delete the exe but I get denied saying that I need permission from the administrator even though I'm in the administrator account. I have checked and the drive and even the infected file says all users have full control.

The file usually has a name similar to V10009C.log. When this file first appeared I opened it with notepad and it was a bunch of jibberish (i.e. REDIRECTURL ), but within all that gibberish I was able to note that it was showing files I had recently accessed (i.e., V i s i t e d : "username"@ f i l e : / / / C : / W i n d o w s / S y s t e m / N e w % 2 0 f o l d e r/filename.extension).
I was able to "securely" delete the file. However, a few days later I noticed a new file appeared with a similar name. When I looked through that file it seemed to have all the previous information from the previous file I deleted and information on files I had accessed since deleting the old file. What this file is and how it keeps adding information of files accessed? I really do not want to have this file reach some absurd file size as it seems to be retaining / recovering information even after deletion. Also, there is a file in the same folder called WebCacheV01.dat that has grown to 33 mb. Can't see its contents and I can't delete.
I found a registry trick that is supposed to add an option to "delete on reboot" when you right click a file. To allow you to schedule files to be deleted when the computer restarts (incase they are currently in use and cant be). The registry edit looks like this:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*shellDelete on rebootcommand]@="CMD /E:OFF /C REG ADD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentversionRunOnce /v "Del %1 OnNextReboot" /d ^"cmd.exe /c DEL /F /Q "%1"" /f""
A: how to edit the registry to make this trick work in windows 8 too.or if not possible B: how to remove the registry edit and take away the broken "delete on reboot option"
I often format my laptop and uses virtual machine as well. So I had a batch (.bat) file to change all windows setting through registry. This batch file also changes command prompt screen size, buffer size and quick edit mode. However this does not work on Windows 8 command prompt setting.
Registry use to change the setting are: - HKCUConsole\%SystemRoot%_System32_cmd.exe - HKCUConsole\%SystemRoot%_SysWOW64_cmd.exe
Just wondering is there any way to change the setting in Windows 8 using batch file?
When I right click on run and select open as administrator, I get the following error: file:////C:/users/pc/appdata/roaming/microsoft/windows/start menu/programs/system tools/run.lnk The parameter is incorrect.
It doesn't give this message when trying run anything else as an administrator as far as I can tell, but it definitely will not let me open the run prompt as an administrator, which presents some obvious problems.
I have the only user account on this computer so it does have administrator privileges although they are not invoked simply from opening the run prompt normally.
I haven't done a DOS copy command for quite some time. I'm wondering if I have forgotten something or is it different using Windows 8 which is my OS. Today I was trying to copy some files from the DOS prompt but got messages of either "wrong syntax", unable to "find file" or"could not find destination". Dose the command prompt work the same in Windows 8 as it always has or am I apparently doing something wrong?
This is a brand new windows 8 system that was sold to a customer. He brought it in for being unable to boot into windows after having used it for a couple of weeks, and he demonstrated the issue to me. It literally just boots to grub. This customer is a basic windows user. No experience with linux or dual booting. He uses it for email. I have never come across this particular problem before, so I ran the normal partition tools to see if the table looked proper for a windows 8 machine. Everything checks out ok, however it is still booting to a grub prompt!!
When Windows 8.1 was released, I upgraded my current Windows 8 installation. Overall, it has been a great experience. However, I've run into a couple of strange problems that I have never had before.
The first problem is, whenever I boot into Windows 8.1, my USB devices don't work right away (keyboard and wireless mouse). It doesn't matter if I restart my computer or have just turned it on. In order to get the keyboard to respond, I have to unplug and plug back in the cord. It's very annoying to have to do this every time I boot Windows.
The second problem is, while Windows is logging in, I get a UAC prompt. The UAC prompt says "Service Control Manager Configuration Tool". This prompt also happens every single time I log on, which is also very annoying.
I have checked my startup programs and have found nothing obvious that could solve these problems, but maybe I'm missing something.
Have these problems happened before? I really would prefer not to do a clean install since everything else is working perfectly and it's not slow at all.
I accidentally installed an adware called Rocket tab however I uninstalled it but after restarting my computer, I am prompted with the following error message. Now, every time I start up my computer this message pops up .
I seem to be having a problem when command prompt needs to run anything as an admin.
This happens whenever it feels it needs to do so, like when setting a program to run as admin myself, or running an installer, like the setup for firefox (I'm in chrome right now, but I happen to prefer firefox)
Basically, whenever it needs to run anything, it'll open up to the user account controls window in this picture:
Upon clicking yes, it opens the command prompt you see in the left of the image for a split second, then closes. (it took many attempts to get a clear shot using printscreen, and I did edit it to have the UAC prompt in the same image to save space)
I'm guessing a manual regedit of some kind, as running any program is obviously blocked by the problem itself. (I cannot install any fixing programs, and anything that needs to run as admin to work is out as well).
I need to execute the command prompt as admin. When I try to do it the command prompt window doesn't open and there are no errors. If I run the command prompt without admin privs it works, but I then can't do what I need to do in the admin window.
I activated Bitlocker for my Operating system drive on a Windows 8 machine. But when starting the process I only can back up the recovery key. I have no dialog to choose how to unlock the drive. Thus even though Bitlocker is running, the PC can be turned and windows can be accessed by common user authentication. No password prompt appears at an early instant of the boot-process.
