Removal of C:\Program Files\Drag-To-Disc\Roxio folder


Da Daniel

Question

Am running Vista 32-bit and even as an Administrator it tells me that I do not have permission to delete this folder. Have also tried to remove it through the Windows Install Clean Up.

 

This folder is empty with the exception of two files: shellex.dll and shellres.dll.

 

I have all the permissions according to the settings under Properties.

 

Any suggestions?

I'm not sure if Vista will allow it, but with UAC turned off, try going to a command prompt, cd to the folder and type in

 

attrib *.* -h -r -s -a

erase *.*

cd ..

rmdir <folder name> (where folder name is the name of the folder you want to remove)

 

and see if that will remove them

Wow! That brings back way too many memories from the past. lol

 

I don't know how many times I used that attribute command.

I have had similar situations.

 

Try dragging the folder to the desktop and then reboot. Then

delete the folder from the desktop.

 

It has worked for me.
