I've installed the hard drive from my old XP computer into my new Windows 7 machine. The drive had some files on it I wanted to keep and I thought the extra storage space would be helpful. The added drive shows up as the D: drive and seems to work well. There are some folders and files I'd like to delete, like old program and windows files, but every time I try I get a message stating that I need permission to do so. I'm the only user on my computer so I don't understand why I cannot delete the files. Is there a way around this?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
