How do I delete temp "access denied" files found in a routine cleanout exercise?
I get say 200 files i e BAK ,tmp etc etc which delete when "select all" is selected.
I get down to about 20 and this "access denied" stops any further deleting - making the alternative a "hi lite on the file beneath the denied one and scrolling down to another, then deleting - then getting more denied files until the bottom of the page is reached.
In particular is Zonealarm (ZLT0404c : and ZLTo45b5)
I even tried "shutdown Zonealarm and that was no better, this in case Zonealarm was using the file

These appear to be of no value so why deny access?

Try deleting them in safe mode.

These might be files which ZA has put aside for you to make a decision on, so has protected. There could be a way to delete them from the ZA control panel.

ZA does not usually intrude into files such as tmp as it is a firewall dedicated to monitoring flow of info to and from your computer. Iit is possible they are attached to some other application that is protecting them so I endorse the safe mode suggestion as likeliest to delete on demand.
