This is my first post and hope someone can help me. I have two Windows Home Edition XP OS on my computer both located on C drive. A while back I tried to re-install windows and apparently mistakenly installed Windows XP a second time. For this computer, a floppy disk came with the system that was for system recovery. I tried to use it but got a message saying that there is an invalid partition on it. When I talked to the company's tech support, I was told it was probably corrupt. I paid to have a Windows CD recovery disc sent which is what I then used. The difference is that with the floppy recovery disc, the computer would have been reset to the company's factory settings - with all of their pre-installed programs. With the Windows CD recovery disc, it just installs Windows XP and nothing else. I did some searching on the internet on how to remove one XP OS when there are two. What I found was to start the computer and choose the OS you want to keep. Then to find the Windows file you want to delete. To do this, I searched the C Drive and found the folder. It is named "Windows.OS". The one I want to keep is named "Windows". Following the instructions of what I found, I then right-clicked on the Windows.OS folder and tried to delete. A few seconds later, I get a message that says something like, "cannot delete flashlle.ocx; make sure file is not in use or is not protected". Since that time, I have been looking for a way to delete that file. From what I have found this is part of the Adobe flash player. If I understand correctly, this file loads up when the computer starts and thus is in use. Does any one know of a way I can delete this file? Also, if someone could give me direction on my ultimate goal of removing the second XP OS I would appreciate it.
