I've ignored that issue and will for some time.
Ok, I use two methods to purge directories like that.
1. I try SAFE MODE.
2. I boot the latest UBUNTU from CD and do not install but run it off the CD and delete the dir and files there.
Two days ago my computer got the all too famous BSOD and refused to even let me run in Safe-mode, so I decided it was high time to finally upgrade to Windows 7. After installing a clean OS and messing around with Windows 7 a bit, I decided to clean up my D: drive (Storage) that I used for unessential programs such as iTunes, Google Chrome, and WinRAR. I left my partitioned C: drive (Local Disk) for my operating system. Then I have E: drive for games.
Now since none of the programs/folders were effected by the reformatted OS, everything is still on the Storage and Game drives but which can't be used. I've managed to delete everything off the E:, but when I try to delete an Adobe folder on D: it says "You'll need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder". But even after I log in as an administrator it says the exact same thing. Now I'm stuck with a folder I can't delete but has absolutely no use and I'm stumped as to how to fix it.
I'm thinking that it has something to do with it being a partitioned drive, and for some reason I think my computer believes it's an external HD (but doesn't think D: is) so I'm worried I did something seriously wrong.
Can someone help me?
