I figured out the last two questions just now, but I am still having trouble with my initial question - how to delete the Windows.old folder? It's still there, mocking me, and yet upon deleting it, Windows insists it is not really there! Two down, though, and one to go.
Well, so far so good with my Vista, but I have three quick questions that I hope can be answered. First, I cannot for the life of me delete the Windows.old folder. It IS shown, but when I attempt to delete it, I get the following, "Could not find this item. This is no longer located in C:\. Verify the item's location and try again." Any thoughts on this? Again, the folder is there, I can click on it, open it up and find the subfolders within, but whenever I try to delete it, it insists it is not there.
My second question has to do with downloading. When I attempt to save to the C:\ directly, I get a message stating I am not the system administrator and do not have that right to save at that location. I am the only person using the computer, I only inputted my name when installing, nothing else. I have no other IDs on this system. How do I go about being able to save where I would like to?
And, lastly, how do I stop the system asking for my permission before it loads anything and everything? If I double click on, say, an item in the control panel, I then have to confirm that I actually DO want to run the item. It's exceptionally annoying, and I wonder if it has something to do with my question above in regards to it thinking I am not the system admin?
Thanks for any and all assistance that can be provided. It is appreciated.
