Just to be sure, these files are in C:\Program files\Adobe(1) and C:\Program files\Adobe(2), where Adobe(1) and Adobe(2) are folders.
Is that right?
If so, what are the file names?
Are there any other files in those folders? If not, what happens if you attempt to delete the folders themselves?
If you check the Properties of those folders and files, (right click each, select Properties), are their attributes set as Read Only? If so, can you change those attributes and remove the Read Only settings?
If all else fails, you could try a utility called MoveOnBoot, from MajorGeeks;
That will let you select the files, (and/or the folders), and the next time you start the computer, MoveOnBoot will attempt to delete them. Be careful though. MoveOnBoot is a very powerful utility, and will delete anything you select, even if you did not mean to select it.
I've got four files in my computer that I can't delete. I don't think they're system files or anything like that. They are in the program files section in windows explorer in folders labled Adobe(2) and Adobe(3). And there are two files in each folder that I can't delete.
I've tried several methods starting with simply deleting the files from windows explorer.
That didn't work, so I uninstalled all the Adobe programs I had (Adobe reader and Flash player). Then I tried to delete the files from windows explorer again with no Adobe programs installed. Still no luck.
So I opened the dos command prompt window and found the files with the command prompt. I tried to delete them with del *.* but still no luck.
I tried the same thing in safe mode and still no luck. What's up with these files and how can I delete them?
