Did you "TAKE OWNERSHIP"? (if you forgot how, google XP TAKE OWNERSHIP)
XP pro SP3.
I have all the .net versions and last week downloaded the net 4 client profile.
It has added a Directory called "2a6fac55ca6888abf37ffd" which is full of folders such as 1025, 1028 etc. Each of the folders has file eula.rtf in a different language. 3.98mb total.
What is odd and annoying is that this directory is on my 2nd HDD. I have one HDD which is partitioned to C, D, E. C = s/w, D = files and E is for stuff for the web. My 2nd HDD is for the storage of photographs and music only. That drive letter is "I" and is where this directory is. I cannot delete these files and uninstalling .net 4 doesn't take them off. I have tried deleting them in the dos prompt too, and in safe mode / dos prompt. With explorer closed off too.
Tried Del nnnnn.rtf and tried rmdir nnnnnn. None of these work in normal or Safe mode. Cannot move the files either. "Access is denied"
Any clues? File size isn't the issue, but these files should be in my C drive.
