    hi.
    the files in the folder must be hidden or no files in the folder or the files may be virus infected just try these open the folder that you want to delete in search window type the file name in the folder then you can see the files in folder now use ctrl+a option all files will be selected now delete the files the files will be deleted now.

    Hi,

    From your query it is not clear wheather the zip related folder is the only folder refused to be deleted, or is it happening to all deletions.

    If you can`t delete any folder then possibly you are not assigned rites to delete by the Administrator of the system.

    In that case log in as an administrator and delete the folder.

    Thanks.

    Hello friend....

    I think you download the virus effective zip file so i can't be deleted and it may be you download the zip file is not download the full fill so it is can't be deleted..

    you do the full scan the whole computer then you delete the file..

    and u also used the deleted file software ...

    All the Best!!

    Dear Friend!!
    Since the folders are in system drive, you need to authorize you as the admin.
    You just right click on the folder,then go to properties, then in security and then to advanced.
    there you have to change the rights as read and edit by user and make full control for the folder you want to delete.

    Re: Canít delete Folder from System drive on Windows 7

    hi dear friend............

    if the folder relates to any software or application or program

    then delete all the entries ....from the registry and as well as from the HOME DRIVE that is C: drive

    after that restart your PC......then delete the folder

    other wise this may be the effect of virus

    so, install the good antivirus and scan the system

    after that delete the folder .........

    before doing all these ....login with the administrator account

    and also if you are unable to delete the folder then try with the command prompt

    first go to the folder location and path

    then type rd foldername press ENTER key




    ALL THE BEST

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.......

    1.Firstly try to re-install the game in the same location.

    2.Then you go to the start menu.

    3.Then you go to the 'Control Panel'.

    4.There you go to the 'Uninstall a program'.

    5.From there you delete the folder so you may fix your problem.

    If it don't work then try to 'Rename' that file.
    So you can delete those files.

    Even it was not deleted then you cannot delete those files as they
    are used by your system.
    You can delete them only by formatting your computer.

    Have a nice day..........

    My dear friend,


    Don't worry i have the solution for your problem.

    ****The file you want to delete the may be used by your system or
    it is the system file.

    *******once you install the Zip file into your program files they will be used by
    your computer. So even if you delete all the files some files will be remaining
    there only.

    All the best***********

    Re: Canít delete Folder from System drive on Windows 7

    Hello dear friend

    This problem is because they are integrated with the old OS install The registry all dells etc

    When you install a piece of software it is not just installed in c

    There are files all over your hard drive that the programs point to

    For this you just reset the properties of the folder

    Click start menu -->all programs

    Then go to Accessories and right click on command prompt

    Run as administrator

    so finally the problem will be solved



    All the very best
