Right click > Properties. Check what rights you have in the Securities tab. The folder / file may belong to someone else. You may take ownership in Advance, but you have to have administrator rights.

    You are not logged in as an Administrator, which you need to do. You may have bigger problems down the line without these credentials.

My computer is very slow

  • Remove unused programs
  • Install and run antispyware software
  • Free up wasted space with Disk Cleanup tool
  • Defragment your hard disk drive

Click Start - Run, type in %temp% and then click OK.
Once that temp folder is open and you can view its contents, select and delete EVERYTHING that's inside it.It's all junk and is a good place for "nasties" to hide.If a few files resist being deleted, that's normal. Leave them alone and delete EVERYTHING else.Repeat the steps with c:\windows\tempAfter you're done with both temp folders, restart the computer.
If the problem still occurs then use a system utility tool like PCFresher to fix this problem.

Hi Mickie, Where is this smart folder? Is it in Mail or somewhere else?
If it's in Mail you can delete it using the little gear icon at the bottom-left of the mail window or from the Mailbox menu.
If it's somewhere else, just try deleting it.

Cannot delete files or folders

In the SimpleDrive Pininfarina FAQ's it suggests that the files may have come from a different computer and therefore be secured, thus you will need to change the Security Properties of the folder & contents to give yourself access to these files in order to be able to delete them.

See example properties from a Windows 7 folder.

How do i change XP Pack 3 to Windows 7

Hi, you need to re-install the operating system (OS). If you need the back up, copy the files in your Desktop & My Documents (because these items are in C drive) to another drive. After that insert windows 7 CD in your drive & restart the machine. Press F12, it'll shows the boot order. Select CD drive. OR change the boot order in BIOS. After restarting It'll shows PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD. press any key & continue your job.

Warning : Pls make sure that you are installing the OS in to the 'C' drive, otherwise you will lost your back up.

The Trash folder deletes itself every few days, without your having any control over the timing. The best solution for saving 'deleted' e-mails to act upon at your own time is to create a new folder (My Own Trash ?, My Deletes ?) and move all deleted e-mails to that folder. You can move many at one time by using the check boxes beside each mail, then select Move. Don't forget to empty this folder once in a while ... :-)

I deleted an email by accident can i retrieve it

Yes, you can. Try to look if you have a trash folder in there. Is there is, then open that folder then look for the email you have deleted then you can already restore that email.
