Every time I try to delete it manually I see this error message: Cannot delete: Flash9.ocx Access denied Please make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use. I search on google.com yahoo.com and microsoft's website for this problem with not luck, I even went to Adobe.com, I called the company where I bought my computer and the coudn't help me. I used TuneUp to delete the file and not luck, I tried this software: http://www.gibinsoft.net/gipoutils/index.htm to delete it but it didn't work. I tried to unistall my flash player thinking this could be the problem why is not letting me delete it, but it didn't work, I tried to delete it in safe mode but I see the same error message. I make sure all permission are right but it didn't work, I have full access control to this folder and I'm not able to delete it. I don't know what else can I do to delete this folder, I'm not planning to format my disk because I have too many files here. I hope somebody can help me. If there is another way to delete this folder I will thank any help.
