Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
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?
Hello, where do you find this files? maybe its a permission issue.
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.
