Can't Remove A Folder


uffbros

Recommended Posts

I tried to delete a folder containing the portable version of Ultra Iso. It won't delete in windows or even if I boot up the computer with any given boot disk. Here is what it says no matter what. What is going on with this? I have never seen anything like this in my 23 years of computing. It should be removed if your booting up with a rescue disk no matter what.

You can try delete a folder with Unlocker (http://www.emptyloop.com/unlocker) or Wise Force Deleter (https://www.wisecleaner.com/wise-force-deleter.html)

Open your task manager check its not in startup if it is cancel it restart and delete. If its not in startup check Services most likely its running preventing you from deleting it stop the servic

Open your task manager check its not in startup if it is cancel it restart and delete.

If its not in startup check Services most likely its running preventing you from deleting it stop the service and delete.

Sometimes moving the file will break the lock you could also try that if all else fails.

Hope that helps good luck.
