Not sure if this has been addressed fully on this forum but Ive been trying to delete previous windows files on various drives and running into a lot of problems. Now before somebody tells me to google this and search on it as there are many threads on this throughout, I have tried everything. I have tried taking ownership and changing the permissions. But even after I do all that, when i try to delete the program files folder or the windows folder, I am still getting access denied and that I still need permission from the username this I have already established as myself. I have also disabled UAC so thats not an issue either with trying to delete the folder. If I am missing something or if somebody has any other ideas, please let me know. This has been bothering me for a while now. I tried doing this a couple months ago and tried every suggestion online then and gave up but now I really want to find the way.
