    I began to think I'm the only one using unlocker!
    Install
    Restart
    Find file
    Right click
    Chose unlock
    Select delete and ok.

    At last I understand why threads get locked. The question was answered a while back but folks keep piling in with suggestions not realising that the solution is now completely buried by new posts.

    You forgot to add, how they keep on saying the same thing over and over again without even reading a single reply, geez I mean how many people told him to reboot even when in another post he stated the only way for it to go away was rebooting =P

    Unlocked, as suggested above, is the easiest way. 9 times out of 10 it works. If it can’t grab the file the first time it tells you, offering to delete it with a forced reboot.

    If you still have issues from there adding take ownership to the mix, first taking ownership via right click then using unlocker.

    If those two fail together you’ll need to delete it from the rescue package. Reboot into safe mode. Load a command prompt or powershell screen as administrator, then navigate to the folder and use the del command to delete it.

    If you still can’t get rid of the file you’ll need to use a live disc or alternate operating system and mount the drive there... but we’re way beyond the windows issue at this point and you have a major underlying problem if you need to get to this last step.

    Convoluted.
    Try Revo Uninstaller.
    Free or paid.
    "Forced Uninstall".

    Revo works for software, not individual files

    This thread has been deleted friends.;) That's what I have been told.:D I really don't know what's going on any longer here on TS. It's seems there is some confusion and hopefully it will get straitened out soon!(y) When I reply here, I'm told my reply's have been deleted because this thread has been deleted. I have no idea whats going on, but I'm sure this will all get straitened out soon. Let's see if this reply is deleted.

    I can not prove you deleted my replies on this thread and it's not that big of a deal. Can we please move forward friend I'm fully aware of the powers you have on TS, and there is no way that I can compete with you. I only want to make a good hand here on TS and pass forward things I have learned on other help forums. Please can we stop this and move forward. Thank you friend.
    Gary!
    PS It seems I can reply on this thread now, but I really have nothing more to add here. I asked a new member to start a new thread because this thread was old and my post was deleted. Good night friends. You are appreciated.

    Hi @mailpup It seems this thread is now open again. I guess that's a good thing. I really don't care any more, but it is still a old thread. Thanks @DavidBailey You are a good man and a asset to TS

    Wrong.
    It works for files too or I would not have suggested it.

    I can't prove that my thread was deleted and that really doesn't matter. OK. Lets move on friends and make TS the best help forum on the internet. This has all been discussed in PM's. Lets get on with helping TS members with Windows Issues.(y):D

    When I reply "Very nice reply" my friend @DavidBailey Hows does that confuse the OP. We all like to be appreciated on help forums. Team work is good IMHO.:D
    PS Very nice reply @DavidBailey You are appreciated on TS help forum

    Let me try to clear up one detail. You seem to misunderstand the difference between a post and a thread. Yes, I deleted a single post of yours in this thread, not the whole thread. The reason I deleted your post is because you replied to a spam post which I deleted. I didn't want to leave your post hanging and replying to empty air so I deleted your post too as it was no longer needed. It's as simple as that.

    At the moment I'm confused.
    Pain medication.
    Which does not help.
    My feet & legs hurt so bad from Diabetic Nerve Pain I could scream & go crazy.

    I have no problem with your decisions my friend. Can we now move forward and make TS the best help forum on the internet.;) Maybe agree to disagree some times. OK

    Sorry my new friend. I did not wish to Hi-Jack this thread and I'm sure you didn't either. I'm moving on now. See you on the forum friend. You are very wise @DavidBailey and you are appreciated. I will not post on this thread again. I really doubt if they will ever listen to us pee-on, but we can always hope my friend. I'm hoping you get your pain under control my friend. You are in my prayers David!
