    Can't delete folder in c:\ProgramData\


    I want to delete a folder in my C:\ProgramData\ loaction but it says I need premission from myself (DESKTOP-2B48AAE\Temren) who is me.


    I am the only user of this machine and there is no one else who uses it. There is only 2 users one me and the other ASP.NET Machine account


    I tried changing the controller of the file to Everyone but then it asks me to "get premission form Everyone".


    I do not know how to fix this but I do know what doesn't work:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIFb2vW-ZEg

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2SXf4PS2Og


    If It helps, I have done something before like this the I reverted my file premission settings so to not be vulnerable to any virus attacks. I suspect that might have to do with this.


    If that is the case, how can I return to the "defult" settings so you know where am I to help me?

    Thanks!

    :)

    C windows installer folder - Delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink Can't delete folder in c:\ProgramData\ ;)
    Better try it out in a virtual of first. Just a suggestion.

    Like:
    First move everything in c:\windows\installer to d:\installercache
    Then delete c:\windows\installer folder
    Then type this in command mode as admin
    mklink /d c:\windows\installer d:\installercache

    Removing those installer files is a bad idea. it might prevent you from updating or uninstalling apps.
