    @cliveyow "Is this only for Vista?" Hard to tell. The registry program will Come and Disappear as soon as it's done, so it did run, but you can't find the new menu entry? that's a sign it's a Vista only hack.
     
  2. I believe that you are not use the righthard drive to the computer.

    Download iobit file unlocker and select that file\folder then you should have no problem deleting it :cool:

    You have an OWNERSHIP / NTFS Permission issue on that directory. Unless you have extensive experience with NTFS I'm reluctant to show the details as a foul-up can make things worse.
