    Default A program to delete those things that you can't delete

    Would anyone happen to know, freeware if possible, a program that is able to delete those files, dlls and what have you that give you the error message "Make sure the disk is not full write-protected yadda yadda...
    Thanks

    Deleting undeletables

    -Open a Command Prompt window.

    -Close any open windows.

    -Close explorer.exe there are two ways
    -1--start > Turn off computer, hold down CTRL+SHIFT+ALT and press the CANCEL button.
    -2--CTRL+ALT+DEL and End task in the process tab

    -Go back to the Command Prompt window and change to the directory where the undeletable file is located in. At the command prompt type del <filename>.

    -Go back to Task Manager, click File, New Task and enter EXPLORER.EXE to restart the GUI shell.
    Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.

    I prefer Killbox myself. It doesn't require installing.

    Will have to try Rob's method sometime, it looks interesting.

    The simplest way is just to boot up in SAFE MODE - then you can delete to your heart's content.

    Safe mode does not give you the ability to delete everything.
