Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

I want to delete the annoying files...

I have 25 files that each are 50MB. Those are "File" type files. And every time I want to delete them, I receive the following message: "Cannot delete. Cannot read from the source file or disk." I tried to use all deleting software, and nothing happened. And I don't want to reinstall the operating systems because if I do, then I have to reactivate it, and I don't want to reactivate it. When I looked for the Google MoveOnBoot software, it was unavailable, and I'm sure that that software can delete those files.

I am running Windows XP Service Pack 2. Can anyone help me delete those files?

Thank you.

first go on the map ->tools->folder options and view
and unmark "user simple file sharing" ->ok

then rightclick on the file and "properties" ->security tab
check the permissions. click edit ->add everyone and set full rights. try then delete the file.

2. In the Run dialog box, type: Regedit and Click OK.
3. In the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
4. In the Registry Editor window, locate and then click to select the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Control/Class/{4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
5. From the File menu, click Export.
6. In the File name dialog box, type: Savedkey, and then click Save.

Cannot delete my bad files...


Could be a process issue stopping you deleting the files. Try downloading unlocker (http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/) and see if this helps.

If not it might be an 8.3 naming convention issue. Go to DOS prompt to a "dir /x /a". Rename the file to less than 8 characters using the SHORT name only. Then try deleting the file.

My bad files cannot be deleted!!!


I would Boot into "DOS" or to the C:> prompt WITHOUT loading windows, (from the same window that you enter safe mode from), and find the suspect files and delete them.  del <filename.ext>
