    Unable to delete Qoobox folder from the C drive of the Windows system

    I have recently discovered a folder named “Qoobox” on the C drive of my Windows system. Later, I discovered that it is feature inside theComboFixapp that removed spyware from my computer a long time ago. When I try to delete it an error message saying “You have been denied permission to access this folder” has appeared on my system. How can I remove this folder?

    The BackEnv folder in the Qoobox folder have permissions to deny access to delete Qoobox. Open up the Qoobox folder and find the BackEnv folder in it and right click on it. Then select properties from the dropdown list. On the properties window, select the security tab. On the security tab select the advanced button. After that select the Continue button on the Advanced settings of BackEnv folder. Under the permissions tab just select the Deny Everyone permission line and hit on the remove button. After that click on the OK button. Now you can easily delete the folder.
