Question: how do I get rid of all those boot files from S:? I tried to delete them, both while in XP and in Win7. While in XP the message I got back was: "Access Denied". And while in Win7 I got back the message "Need permission from TrusedInstaller."

Any insights on how to do this?

You will probably just need to take ownership and give yourself permission. When you do this for a folder, make sure you check and apply it to all subfolders and files.

There are many sites that explain how to do this, and this Microsoft site is one of them, but no pretty pictures.

If you have problems, let us know.
