    hello guest !!

    1. please be ensure that the file you are going to copy or delete is present in the system or not.??
    2.check the file permission >> whether you are permittedto do any editing on that particular file or not.

    if everything works fine,and than also you are getting error than restore your system to previous date .everything will goes fine.
    for restoring follw the sreps:

    1.go to start
    2.select program
    3.select assesories.
    4.select system tools
    5.select restroe system.
    6.select any restore point given there.
    7.restore your system.

    than reboot .
    now do copy and delete.

    Hello,


    Your computer is virus effected and you need some good quality anti-virus to clean them.
    Install either Kaspersky, AVG or Quick Heal and scan your PC for a possible virus attack.
    If the anti-virus does not find any virus then you should use the system Restore option
    of Windows. It will take your PC to a previous state. But if your OS faild to restore to a
    previous date then you have format your PC my friend.

    Bye,

    Hey..

    Facing issues while trying to copy and delete the files from windows Xp :


    This might be due to the virus effect .

    so , scan your PC thoroughly with the good and reputed antivirus .



    remove all the virus .

    Run the disk defragement once with the help of any third party software .

    See that the file is not used by any of the program .

    use unlocker and stop/ kill the process .

    now try to copy .


    Thanks a lot !!

    Re: Issue while trying to copy and delete files from Windows XP

    Hello friend,


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

    1.This can be the problem of the permissions.

    2.If those files are being used by your system.

    3.Then they cannot be moved or deleted.

    4.If that is not your problem if you are unable to copy any file then this may be the problem of the virus.

    5.So you try to install Antivirus software and then use it.

    6.Still if you have the problem then it is the problem of the Os files.

    7.So you try to repair the OS files.

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