Hi You might be able to get around the administrator thing by logging into The "Administrator" account if you havn't already tried that. This account has privileges that a regular administrator account doesn't. To do that you have to go through this process. How to Enable the Administrator Account Open the command prompt with elevated privileges by clicking the Start orb, All Programs, Accessories, right-click Command Prompt and then select Run as administrator. Type or cut and paste… net user administrator /active:yes and then press Enter. Log out and log back in as Administrator. When you are done undue the process by doing the same thing and pasting in net user administrator /active:no Mike Ps. I've also solved problems like this by using a bootable Ubuntu disk to move or delete things that Windows didn't want to allow me to.
